AFP-TN State Director Tori Venable issued the following statement:

“Tennessee is moving in the right direction, but more work needs to be done to break down barriers for Tennesseans. Health care costs remain far too expensive for many families, the criminal justice system still prioritizes punishment over rehabilitation, and the government continues to keep the public in the dark on taxpayer handouts to businesses.”

“We urge lawmakers to focus on policies that address the state’s big problems and benefit all Tennesseans. Increasing government transparency, economic freedom, educational freedom, health care innovation, and shifting to a smart on crime criminal justice system will ensure Tennesseans have more opportunity to achieve their American dream.”

“These issues are long-term efforts for us, and we look forward to engaging our volunteers to work closely with lawmakers in 2019 and beyond.”

AFP-TN’s Five Policy Areas to Move Tennessee Forward:

  1. Criminal Justice Reform
  2. Educational Freedom
  3. Government Transparency
  4. Health Care Innovation
  5. Economic Freedom and Opportunity
