Turning Up the Heat on Harwell
Newschannel5 has the story of how activists supporting Insure Tennessee are turning up the heat on House Speaker Beth Harwell — calling on her to bring the legislation to the House floor for a vote.
Activists, who want the state Legislature to expand Medicaid benefits to Tennesseans who lack health coverage, have turned up the heat on House Speaker Beth Harwell.
About 20 billboards went live around the state Monday asking Harwell to help pass Insure Tennessee, the governor’s Medicaid expansion plan.
The Speaker can call up a resolution and bring the bill to the floor at anytime, but so far has refused to do so.
