United States Department of DefenseNashville, TN– Tennessee State Representative Curtis Johnson (R-Clarksville) was recognized recently by the United States Department of Defense for his “leadership on public policy changes positively impacting the quality of life of Service members and their families.”

The award of appreciation comes after Rep. Johnson successfully passed several bills to aid military service members and their families, including House Bill 1106 which was approved this year.  That new law requires a court to hold an expedited hearing, if appropriate, for a temporary modification to a decree for child custody or visitation when a parent, who is to be mobilized into military duty, requires immediate attention. It also requires the court to allow testimony to be given by electronic means while the military parent is out of the state and authorizes the court to permanently modify a decree of child custody or visitation if a parent volunteers for successive or frequent duties that removes the parent from the state. «Read the rest of this article»
