JUST ONE QUESTION: State Rep. Joe Carr (R) Dist. 48

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WMOT)  --  With presidential debate season underway, WMOT  News is asking Tennesseans what one question they would ask the candidates if given the chance.

Today's question comes from State Rep. Joe Carr, a Republican legislator representing Tennessee's 48th district.

“Given the ever increasing and dysfunctional role of the federal government in the lives of the citizenry in determining the affairs of the individual and the affairs of the state, what should the state do to secure the promise of personal responsibility and state sovereignty  as originally outlined in the U.S. Constitution?”

Rep Carr says he finds himself increasingly in conflict with federal regulations and law as he tries to represent the will of his constituency.
