Insurance and Banking

Issues

Tennessee Health Freedom Act

Lynn denounced statements in campaign ads of Senator Mae Beavers and urged Beavers to follow the guidelines outlined in a bill Beavers filed but never ran about truthful campaigning.

Lynn says that Beavers falsely claims in print and in radio advertisements that Lynn killed the Healthcare Freedom Act by cutting a deal with the Speaker of the House, Kent Williams in the last week of session.

Lynn responded to Beavers’ attack by saying, “This is untrue, and Senator Beavers can cite no evidence because such an event never occurred. There is no reason why I would kill my own legislation after I worked on the Healthcare Freedom Act for a year.”[1]
