Feds move to correct Obama's transgender healthcare policies
WASHINGTON (May 24, 2019) — The Trump administration proposed Friday to roll back Obama-era discrimination policies for transgender people in health care.
Gov. Bill Lee (R-Tenn.) has made good on his election promise to bring in an education voucher program in Tennessee.
Both the House and the Senate votes were somewhat close, according to chalkbeat.org., and Democrats were largely opposed to the measure, saying the it will not stand up to a constitutional challenge.
Shaka Mitchell – who serves as Tennessee State Director of the Tennessee chapter of the American Federation for Children – believes that the bill will pass scrutiny.
"We are pretty confident that the key provisions of the bill are going to remain intact,” Mitchell assured. “I feel pretty confident in that.”
Many parents were frustrated because the bill only benefits students in the Memphis and Nashville school districts, but Mitchell feels the program will be expanded – once the success stories pour in.
"And I think other districts and other families across the state are going to want this in their area sooner than later,” Mitchell expressed.
The conference committee approved a compromise between the House and Senate versions only after homeschoolers were removed from the program.
