House Democrats voted down Green’s amendment to protect free speech in the resolution, which seeks to give the federal government control of elections, The Tennessee Star reported in March.
Green is the president of the Republican freshman class.
The 33 members of the 116th Congress unanimously elected Green to lead the class, as The Tennessee Star reported on Nov. 29, 2018.
“I’m honored to be elected by this distinguished group of colleagues as president of the Freshman Class,” said Congressman-elect Green at the time. “I ran for Congress to take our successful leadership in Tennessee to Congress, and am excited to be able to lead the freshman class.”
Green has been an active supporter of President Donald Trump, and as recently as Friday tweeted support for the president’s proposed reform of the immigration system: “The president’s plan to update our immigration system for the 21st century receives my endorsement. It keeps families together and at the same time creates a more fair visa system. I don’t see how anyone could oppose this.”
