From 1998 until 2009 she was a member of the Alabama House of Representatives. Dunn has been a member of the Alabama Senate since a special election was called in 2009. In April 2015 work in the Senate slowed down due to a resolution opposing efforts to expand Medicaid.[3] In August 2015 a Senate committee which Dunn was a part of put a ban on selling tissue from aborted fetuses. Dunn cast the sole vote against the ban.[4]
