Great news on Henry’s Law! Today the Governor included funding for Henry’s Law in his supplemental budget. Legislators should be back in the Finance Committee within the next 2 weeks to pass the bill, once the supplemental budget is released. So it’s pretty much a done deal. Thank you so much to all of you who have supported the bill and have supported Betsy Allison Tant & me as we’ve worked to get the bill passed. Huge thanks to the legislators who believe that Henry’s Law is important and have taken it on to usher it through the process to see that the bill becomes law in the state of Tennessee.
And thank you especially to Henry, who while still only a teenager, suffered terribly at the hands of adult drug dealers, thus inspiring this important legislation.
