Representative Clark Boyd Signs On As Sponsors Of Bills

Tuesday, 13 February 2018

Last week, State Representative Clark Boyd (R-Lebanon) signed on as a sponsor of several critical Republican-led initiatives. They strengthen the state’s TennCare and SNAP programs by instituting work requirements for these programs.
House Bill 1551 directs the commissioner of the Tennessee Department of Finance and Administration to file a waiver instituting reasonable work requirements for TennCare enrollees. The measure comes as the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services issued new guidelines for states, allowing them to implement work requirements on citizens who receive these benefits.
Additionally, Representative Boyd signed on as a sponsor of House Bill 1822. This measure institutes reasonable work requirements for those who receive assistance through the state’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).
Representative Boyd is scheduled to be at the Cannon County Senior Center this coming Friday for a Town Hall Style Meeting from 1:00-3:00.  Everyone is invited to attend.
