TENNESSEE CITIZEN ACTION RELEASES STATEMENT ON HOUSE PASSAGE OF HB194, WORKERS’ COMP BILL
Nashville, Tenn. (April 11, 2013) – Mary Mancini, executive director of Tennessee Citizen Action, issued the following statement on House passage of HB194:
“With passage of this bill that guts workers’ comp as we know it by drastically cutting insurance payments to workers injured on the job, the House of Representatives has clearly shown that instead of being on the side of protecting the hardworking Tennesseans who elected them, they are on the side of special interests like big insurance companies and large corporations who already benefit from so many tax loopholes and giveaways.
As we continue our work across the state, we promise that we will do all we can to let the constituents of each House member who voted for this bill know that it’s because of their vote that hardworking men and women who are injured on the job will have to struggle even harder just to take care of their families.”
