Action Item: Movement on 4 Important Bills in Tennessee
The Tennessee General Assembly will be taking action on four important bills this week. These bills cover a wide range of issues, including health care, greenhouse gas regulation, Real ID, and firearms. It is critical to contact state legislators as soon as possible to express support for these bills.
The Health Care Choice Act would allow Tennesseans to purchase health insurance across state lines and would expand the number of health care plans available for purchase from 127 in Tennessee to potentially more than 5,000 plans nationwide. See the article Senator Kelsey Files Health Care Choice Act for more details on this bill.
The bill will go before the Senate Commerce, Labor & Agriculture Committee on Tuesday, March 16 and the House Government Operations Committee on Wednesday, March 17. Contact the members of these committees listed below and encourage them to support the bills.
