Tommy disappoints on this one. This is from LEAF:

In the Senate, we had good news and bad news. The good news is that on Wednesday, the day we were told to expect a vote, we had the necessary votes present and ready to vote for the Tennessee Scenic Vistas Protection Act. At the hearing, we provided the Senate committee members with lots of ugly pictures (again) and the list of Office of Surface Mining violations (long and scary).

The bad news is that the committee chairman, Senator Tommy Kilby, once again blocked a vote. This first happened about a month ago and is beginning to get tiresome.

Lost Medicaid Funding

To date, the failure to expand Medicaid / TennCare has cost the State of Tennessee ? in lost federal funding.
