Tennessee State Senators and House of Representatives: Pass SB2658 Barnes /HB2857 Maggart -- Criminal Law: Assault
We have over 200 signatures and gaining momentum.
Feb 26, 2012 — Thanks to every single one of you signing the petition and now spreading the word by posting a link on FB, tweeting it to followers (the web-link will be shortened so you can add text) and by e-mailing all your health care colleagues.
To let you know how important this petition is to the upcoming critical vote in the TN House Sub-committee I am adding a link below with the 3 minute Youtube clip of one senator's negative comments February 15th about nurses and her lack of support for this bill. The senator had to be cut-off after her nearly twenty minute disturbing commentary.
Please let this video motivate you to invite and persuade others to sign the petition in such large numbers we feel assured of this bill's movement onto the House floor for debate and vote. The companion bill has already passed the Senate Judiciary Committee and should be heard soon for full debate and vote on the Senate floor.
