Fort Campbell KY - 101st Airborne DivisionFort Campbell, KY – When he was nominated for the GEICO Military Service Award, Sgt. 1st Class Julio Mella, 21st Brigade Engineer Battalion, 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division, was honored but did not think much about it.

“There were many, many people being nominated with me,” Mella said. “I wasn’t being pessimistic, just realistic.”

The GEICO Military Service Awards Program “spotlights the valuable and lasting contributions enlisted members of the armed forces make in three specific areas of endeavor,” according to the GEICO website.

Service members can be nominated for service in drug and alcohol abuse prevention, fire safety and fire prevention or traffic safety and accident prevention. Each year, one member from each branch of the service is selected to receive the award.

Written by Curtis Johnson
Tennessee State Representative

Tennessee State Representative - District 68Nashville, TN – The House Finance, Ways and Means Subcommittee will consider legislation next week requiring the Tennessee Department of Health (DOH) to identify individuals who are in the top 20 percent of prescribers of opioids in the state.  After being identified and notified of the high volume opioid prescriber status, this legislation requires the prescribers to comply with certain requirements.

The legislation aims to address Tennessee’s status as second in the nation in abuse of opiates.

Under current law, the DOH monitors the 100 highest volume opioid prescribers in Tennessee.  HB 1207  calls for DOH, in addition, to look at prescribers who are at high-risk based on clinical criteria, such as overdoses or dangerous drug combinations.
