Catch up on what’s happening with Tennessee state government this Friday morning when the Chamber of Commerce holds its annual Legislative Breakfast.
The gasoline tax, medical marijuana, and reimbursements to healthcare providers are expected to be among the items of discussion.
The three lawmakers who represent Warren County are scheduled to be in attendance – state Sen. Janice Bowling, and state Reps. Judd Matheny and Paul Sherrell.
The event is set for this Friday morning, March 31, at the Nursery Research Center from 7 to 9 a.m. A catered breakfast will be served before lawmakers address the audience and also answer audience questions.
“The gas tax has certainly been a hot topic,” said Sherrell, who is in the midst of his first legislative session. “Marijuana, if it is to be used for medical purposes, is something I think that will be rolled into summer study for more consideration.”
Public Defender John Partin will return as moderator. Each lawmaker will be given a question to answer in an allotted amount of time.
“This gives members an opportunity to ask them questions that are relevant to them, their businesses or organizations, and our community,” said Chamber president Mandy Eller.
The cost is $10 for Chamber members and $15 for non-members.
Reservations can be made by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling the Chamber at 473-6611.
