Written by Joe Pitts
Tennessee State Representative

Tennessee State Representative - District 67Nashville, TN – The Bounty Hunter Bill House Bill 2007/Senate Bill 2676 (Sen. Paul Bailey (R-Sparta) was heard in the House Criminal Justice Subcommittee this week.  The bill was defeated by voice vote without a single question being asked. 

“I regret we were unable to see this bill advance.  We worked with law enforcement, and the bail bond industry for several months to come up with some very common sense changes that would enhance public safety,” Rep. Pitts stated.  “The vote was a surprise given the lack of questions or concerns raised by the committee during the hearing.  I hope another tragedy, like the one in our community in 2017, doesn’t happen before needed changes are made.”

Nashville Zoo Seeks Volunteers for Weed Wrangling March 3rd

 

Nashville ZooNashville, TN – Nashville Zoo is seeking volunteers for the third annual Weed Wrangle, a city-wide clean-up day dedicated to ridding Nashville of non-native plant species. Weed Wrangle is set for Saturday, March 3rd, 2018 from 9:00am- 12:00pm.

Exotic invasive plants, particularly bush honeysuckle and Chinese privet, have out competed native plant species over the last hundred years on the Zoo’s property.

Without natural predators, this invasive vegetation negatively impacts the ecosystem, causing a decline in native plants along with the animals that rely on them.

Curtis Johnson: News from the Tennessee Capitol, February 18th, 2018

 

Written by Curtis Johnson
Tennessee State Representative

Tennessee State Representative - District 68Nashville, TN – Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam announced that the application process is open for adults to enroll tuition-free this fall at a community or technical college through Tennessee Reconnect.

Tennessee Reconnect builds off the groundbreaking Tennessee Promise program, which provides high school graduates two years of tuition-free community or technical college, by establishing a last-dollar scholarship for adults to earn an associate degree or technical certificate free of tuition or mandatory fees.

By 2025, at least half the jobs in our state will require a college degree or certificate. Tennessee will lead in creating highly-skilled jobs if we make sure that Tennesseans are ready for those jobs, and there is no smarter investment than increasing access to high quality education.
