Marsha Blackburn Report: Another Week on the Road

 

U.S. SenateNashville, TN – This August’s work period has gone by in a flash! Traveling to nearly 40 counties throughout our state helped me determine how I can make life a little easier for my fellow Tennesseans. I’m ready to get back to D.C. and put everything I’ve learned over the past few weeks to good use.

Tennesseans should be able to receive quality health care close to home, when and if they need it. Folks in Dickson County weighed in on my Rural Health Agenda, which will establish or expand medical facilities and bring more providers to rural areas.
