Black May Run for Governor
AP Monday February 13, 2017

Diane Black may be in charge of one of the most powerful committees in Congress, but the Gallatin Republican says that doesn't mean she won't run for Tennessee governor next year.
Black was named interim chair of the House Budget Committee in January when President Donald Trump nominated Rep. Tom Price of Georgia to become secretary of Health and Human Services.
Black tells the Chattanooga Times Free Press that she sees her Congressional position as an "opportunity" to get the country's budget in order. But in the former state senator's words: "That doesn't preclude me from doing things later down the road."
Several candidates are expected to challenge for the Republican nomination to succeed term-limited Gov. Bill Haslam next year.

 


Medical Association Weighs in on Healthcare
Monday February 13, 2017

As discussions about the future of the ACA continue at the national and state levels, the Tennessee Medical Association is weighing in on how to improve the quality of health care.
The TMA has released new recommendations for how its members believe the country should move forward with heath care.
The association’s president, Dr. Keith Anderson, says it starts with a focus on wellness.
The TMA recommends the federal government eliminate out-of-pocket charges for preventive care and continue to reduce barriers to patient care.
That includes prohibiting insurance companies from denying coverage to people with preexisting conditions, and allowing parents to keep children on their health insurance plans until age 26.
Anderson maintains lawmakers should look to work within the existing structure of the Affordable Care Act, instead of starting from scratch.
