Written by Joe Pitts
Tennessee State Representative

Tennessee State Representative - District 67Nashville, TN – On Monday April 10th, I was honored to recognize Mr. Gordon Wayne Miller on the occasion of his retirement. Mr. Miller is the current executive director of the Tennessee Organization of School Superintendents (TOSS). Prior to coming to TOSS, he enjoyed a 27 year career at Lenoir City Schools.

HB 500 sponsored by Tennessee State Representative Joe Pitts, has passed the Full Senate and Full House and is on its way to the Governor for his signature. This legislation was requested by members of the Board of Osteopathic Examination to increase members’ per diem reimbursement for their meetings.

Tennessee State Representative

Tennessee State Representative - District 67Nashville, TN – House Bill 20/Senate Bill 23 sponsored by Tennessee State Representative Joe Pitts (D-Clarksville) and Senator Mark Green (R-Clarksville) is scheduled to be heard in the Local Government subcommittee on Tuesday, April 4th at 3:00pm.

“I have filed an amendment to the bill which would mirror the legislation the Governor has put in his IMPROVE ACT with one exception. The Governor only raised the Veterans property assessed value on their homes to $135,000 which is still below the original amount of $175,000,” said Representative Pitts.

Veterans Hiring Measure Passes the Tennessee House of Representatives

 

Written by Joe Pitts
Tennessee State Representative

Tennessee State Representative - District 67Nashville, TN – Hiring Preferences for Veterans – House Bill 165/Senate Bill 209 (Senator Mark Green, R-Clarksville) passed the Senate and House of Representatives and was sent to the Governor for his signature on March 20th.

To paraphrase an old saying, the second time is the charm, or something like that.  House Bill 165 and Senate bill 209 recently passed the House and Senate after the second attempt. The proposal would enable private employers to create hiring preferences for veterans, their spouses, and surviving spouses of deceased veterans without running afoul of provisions in the 1964 Civil Rights Act prohibiting hiring discrimination among other areas.
