NASHVILLE –A new iPhone app released today is designed to help residents connect with members of the 107th Tennessee General Assembly. The app was developed by the Tennessee Electric Cooperative Association and Bass Berry &
Sims PLC and contains detailed and searchable contact, staff and committee information for Tennessee representatives and senators.
“For more than 30 years, the Tennessee Electric Cooperative Association has produced the most widely distributed print directory of the Tennessee General Assembly,” says TECA general manager David Callis. “Today, the same information is available in an interactive, searchable application for the iPhone.”
“This app is the first of its kind in Tennessee,” says Dick Lodge, attorney and long-time lobbyist with Bass Berry & Sims PLC. “The app is ideal for anyone who wants to monitor the activities at the state Capitol and is designed to be the best reference possible for those who are interested in or work with Tennessee legislators.”
The Tennessee General Assembly app features:
- a functional database of all Senate and House members
- contact, staff and committee information
- fast and easy search function
- one-click call or e-mail ability
Apple iPhone users can find the $4.99 app by searching for “Tennessee General Assembly” in the App Store. A version for the iPad and Android devices will be available soon. An new app will be released with each General Assembly.
