Tennessee State GovernmentNashville, TN – Tennessee Governor Bill Lee has announced the first bill of his administration’s legislative package for the 2021 Tennessee General Assembly.

“Over the coming weeks, we will be offering a preview of policy proposals that will streamline Tennessee government and ensure that we are good stewards of taxpayers’ dollars,” said Governor Lee.

“Our National Guard servicemen and women have been front and center in our COVID-19 response and this bill will support their efforts and help ensure the very best continue to serve in the Tennessee National Guard,” Governor Lee stated.

The Reemployment Act will:

  • Amend Tennessee law to provide reemployment protections for service members called to state active duty;
  • Close the gap in benefits by providing state active duty benefits more closely aligned to those provided while in federal status.
  • Keep the Tennessee National Guard competitive in recruiting top talent that might otherwise serve in a neighboring state National Guard that does provide protection.
