State GOP Lawmakers to Introduce Law to Reveal Public Office Seekers Credit Scores

Two Upper Cumberland State Lawmakers say they will introduce a bill requiring anyone running for public office to reveal their personal credit score. Sparta republican state Sen. Paul Bailey and Crossville GOP Rep. Cameron Sexton say they drew up the measure after some expressed concerns about public officials who can’t keep up with their own finances. State law now requires some elected and appointed officials to file financial disclosure information, but a credit score is not required. Sexton says candidates run for office pledging to balance budgets and be fiscally conservative but a personal credit score will prove if they can deliver.
