House passes budget focused on Tennessee Values


Budget restores program to protect infants and creates framework for job growth

Nashville, TN – State Representative Joe Pitts (D-Clarksville) and the Tennessee House of Representatives put families, farmers and flood survivors first on Friday in passing a bipartisan state budget that created no new taxes while maintaining a healthy reserve fund for the state’s future.  One troubling omission is Senate Republicans objecting to $20 million in tax relief for the businesses negatively affected by the recent historic flooding.

“This budget successfully protects our priorities of public education, saving and creating jobs and protecting our most vulnerable citizens,” Pitts said. “Even in lean economic times, we created a small business opportunity fund to help small businesses across our state, provided vital services for our most vulnerable babies, gives desperately needed support to our farmers and helps thousands of Tennesseans who suffered catastrophic damage during the May floods. Those are the priorities our citizens expect from their lawmakers.” «Read the rest of this article»
