Make your presence known Monday at legislative hearing for disabled Tennesseans being sent to die
A critically important legislative hearing is slated for 1 p.m. Monday for 1,000 Tennesseans being forced by the state into nursing homes to suffer early deaths.
This change of the rules by the TennCare Bureau last summer was unnecessary and cruel. Legislation has been proposed to overturn these rules and allow these Tennesseans to live in their homes with the support of loved ones and necessary nursing.
The hearing will be Monday at 1 p.m. in Room 12 at Legislative Plaza for lawmakers to hear from the public and the disabled themselves. Please show up and demonstrate that these citizens matter.
