He also has been active in conservative Republican politics in Tennessee, testifying in and working with members of the Assembly on issues from textbooks, to abuses of asset forfeiture, to making speed limits conform to federal regulations. Mr. Rounds has stood out as the Fayette County citizen who has regularly shared our Declaration of Independence with citizens in our 4th of July Courthouse observance.
