(NASHVILLE, TN) – Rep. Susan Lynn this morning passed HJR 745 out of the House Commerce Committee. The measure is a Constitutional Amendment to the Tennessee Constitution that would prohibit laws or rules that would compel any person, employer, or health care provider to participate in any health care system.
The amendment is directed at protecting the rights of Tennesseans from any government that would require them to purchase a health insurance project.
"This bill is a necessary step in light of what we see our federal Government passing and attempting to enact," said Rep. Lynn.
The resolution will be heard next in the House Finance, Ways & Means Committee.
Representative Lynn serves House District 57, which consists of part of Sumner and Wilson Counties. She is serving in her fourth term in the Tennessee House of Representatives. Her work includes serving as on the House Government Operations Committee as well as serving on the House Commerce Committee.
