(WDEF)  Senate Speaker Pro Tempore Bo Watson (R-Hixson) has been appointed to serve as a member of the Council of State Governments’ (CSG) Governing Board. CSG is the bi-partisan professional association which is the only national organization serving all three branches of government in all 50 states and Puerto Rico. International affiliates include the Provincial and Federal governments of Canada.

“I appreciate the opportunity to serve on the CSG Board,” said Speaker Watson. “I look forward to working with leaders in other states in this capacity. It is important that states share best practices in public policy as we learn what works best for our citizens.”

Watson has served in the Tennessee Senate since 2006 and as Senate Speaker Pro Tempore since 2011. He served a two-year term in the House of Representatives previously.

Founded in 1933, CSG's region-based forum fosters the exchange of insights and ideas to help state officials shape public policy. This offers unparalleled regional, national and international opportunities to network, develop leaders, collaborate and create problem-solving partnerships.

The organization is based in Lexington, Ky. and also has an office in Washington, D.C. It has regional offices in Atlanta, New York City, Chicago and Sacramento.
