Legislative Activities

The 110th General Assembly of the State of Tennessee was very busy TNAAP!  We had a great turnout at our 2018 Day on the Hill on March 13 with over 40 pediatricians from across the state in attendance!  We monitored over 600 bills related to pediatrics and child safety and had several wins in terms of bills defeated and bills passed.   

The 112th General Assembly will convene on January 7, 2020. TNAAP will be hosting their annual Day on the Hill
March 31, 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!
