Plot Summary

After a Senator suddenly dies after completing (and sealing) an investigation into the nuclear power industry, the remaining Senator and the state Governor must decide on a person who will play along with their shady deals and not cause any problems. They decide on Billy Jack, currently sitting in prison after being sent to jail at the end of his previous film, as they don't expect him to be capable of much, and they think he will attract young voters to the party. Billy is pardoned, released, and nominated, after which he begins his duties. He soon notices that things aren't right, and starts trying to find out just what is going on. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher

Trivia Tom Laughlin and Delores Taylor kept the mailbags brought into the Senate at the finale as souvenirs. They used them for duffel bags on skiing trips. The bags were confiscated by airport officials, claiming that they were property of the US Post Office, but they were actually created for this film. See more »
