The Hill’s 50 Wealthiest lawmakers


Black’s wealth took off in 2011, rising by more than $14 million.

The increase can be partly attributed to her spouse’s gains in the stock market. A money market fund held by Dr. David Black went from $100,000 in value in 2010 to being worth at least $5 million.

The couple jointly hold some serious real estate, including a property in Nashville worth at least $5 million and a property in Panama Beach, Fla., valued at a minimum of $500,000.

Along with her assets improving, Black reported a decline of almost $3 million in her liabilities. The former nurse listed about $3 million in debts for 2011, including two mortgages worth at least $1 million apiece.
