New Session Begins
WTVF Wednesday January 10, 2018

Lawmakers were back in Nashville Tuesday to begin the second year of the 110th General Assembly.
It will be a session that includes many changes. While lawmakers will still meet in the State Capitol, their offices and committee meeting rooms have been moved from Legislative Plaza to the nearby Cordell Hull building.
The issue of requiring seat belts on school buses may return.
Unlike in the past, legislation to implement private school voucher programs won't return.
As the state continues to battle an opioid epidemic, bills attempting to prevent overdoses may be priorities. Last year, a legislative task force made several recommendations including adding more agents at the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, creating a commission to fight drug abuse and limiting the number of controlled drugs prescribed in emergency rooms.
In the past, sessions have ended around April, however this year's session may be shorter. Many lawmakers may push to wrap up work early to hit the campaign trail.

 


Record Number of Suicides in Tennessee
AP Wednesday January 10, 2018

An average of three people died by suicide each day in Tennessee in 2016, the highest recorded in the state in more than 35 years. The Tennessee Suicide Prevention Network indicates 1,110 suicides occurred in Tennessee in 2016. There were seven suicides in Warren County.
News outlets cite Tennessee health officials as saying white middle-aged men in rural areas account for a majority of the deaths. White males make up 40 percent of Tennessee's population, but made up 77 percent of suicide deaths in 2016.
But officials from the Tennessee Department of Health's Office of Health Statistics say suicides also are increasing among those 10 to 19 years old.
Health Department officials say the difficulty of talking about feeling suicidal and the stigma surrounding mental illness have contributed to the rise in suicides.
