Legislative Activities

The second half of the 111th Session of the TN General Assembly began January 14, 2020. We are likely to see legislation on nursing scope of practice, tobacco and vaping, NAS, cow shares and balance "surprise" billing, to name a few. By the end of the bill filing period, TNAAP could be following as many as 200 pieces of legislation which touch the lives of children, families and your practice.

TNAAP will be hosting their annual Day on the Hill March 24, 2020. Please plan to join us and make your voice heard! Advance registration is required so we can plan appointments with your local representatives. We hope to see you there!

 TNAAP Day on the Hill! 

The day includes a brief tour of the capitol, a general overview of the legislative process, a discussion of current proposed legislation, individual and group meetings with legislators and leadership, as well as attendance at various committee meetings.

This is your chance to get involved and speak out on behalf of children and pediatricians. Whether you are new to the process or a "seasoned veteran", your participation helps us make a solid impact with Tennessee legislators.
