The TN Legislature is in full swing and TASA has met with Leadership to discuss our priorities for this year. At the top of the list is “EMS as an Essential Service” (SB1597 / HB0719). We have worked closely with the County Mayors Association and the County Services Association for several months to make sure we structured the amendment to address their concerns. As of March 9th, this legislation has passed out of subcommittees in both the Senate and the House. View the full amendment that re-writes the bill.
