NASHVILLE, TN (WJHL) -

A Tennessee legislator from the Tri-Cities is catching heat for passing a resolution to honor himself.

Resolutions are basically congratulatory notes for achievements.

This legislative session lawmakers have passed 476 resolutions - each one typically costing taxpayers about $300.

Senator Jon Lundberg of Bristol just passed a resolution to honor his public relations firm,  The Corporate Image.

Lundberg's resolution was written by his own staff and says things like "the owners and employees of The Corporate Image are many such noteworthy persons" and "the company has continued to set the standard for the highest quality professional services."

Lundberg told Nashville TV station WSMV that he paid for his resolution, so it didn't end up costing the state anything.

Lundberg said does resolutions for all of the businesses hitting in his district.
