Tennessee Healthcare Reform--Governor's Budget Address


Email Alert

January 29, 2010

By J. Richard Lodge and Erica Bell Vick*

Governor Phil Bredesen will give his eighth and last budget address to the legislature on Monday, February 1, at 6:00 pm Central. He is expected to preview a dismal state budget that may call for reductions in major programs such as TennCare, the state's Medicaid program, of as much as 9%. Any reductions for fiscal year 2010-2011 (beginning July 1, 2010) will be, of course, in addition to similar reductions in the current year budget. Live streaming video of the governor's address will be available at

*We would like to J. Richard Lodge, Esquire, and Erica Bell Vick, Esquire (Bass Berry & Sims PLC, Nashville, TN), for providing this summary.
