Nashville, TN – The Tennessee House passed several key bills this week, including the state budget and major legislation to curb opioid abuse, as the 2018 session of the Tennessee General Assembly draws to a close.  The $37.5 billion “no growth” budget proposes state government spending for the next fiscal year that begins July 1st, 2018 and extends to June 30, 2019.

The balanced budget addresses opioid abuse, school safety, teacher funding, rural economic development and job growth, while allocating additional funds for the care of Tennessee’s most vulnerable citizens.  The bill focuses on the four “e’s” of Tennessee:  employment, education, economic opportunity and enforcement of the law.
