Billy Lee Evans (born November 10, 1941) is an American politician who served in both the Georgia House of Representatives and the U.S. House of Representatives.

Evans was born in Tifton, Tift County, Georgia, in 1941. He attended public schools and earned his bachelor's and law degrees from the University of Georgia. Admitted to the Georgia bar in 1965, Evans began practicing law in Macon, Georgia.

Evans was a member of the Georgia House of Representatives from 1969 to 1976. On November 2, 1976, he was elected as a Democrat to the United States Congress. Evans served in Congress from January 3, 1977, to January 3, 1983. He was unsuccessful in his campaign for renomination in 1982, losing the primary to J. Roy Rowland, after accusations arose that he had accepted illegal campaign contributions.[1]

Evans is vice president of government relations for a consulting firm in Washington, D.C. and resides in nearby Vienna, Virginia. He also serves on the Board of Directors of American Freedom Coalition, an organization founded by Christian Right leader Robert Grant and Civil Rights leader Ralph Abernathy.
