TennCare Work Requirement Hits A Snag

Mar 25, 2018

A state law that would demand a work requirement for certain people on TennCare appeared to be on track last week before it hit a snag.

The proposal had passed the state House and Governor Bill Haslam said he was ready to sign it. But a final vote in the state Senate was delayed at the very last minute.

Now it's unclear whether it will pass.

In this week's edition of the Tri-Star State, Nashville Public Radio's Jason Moon Wilkins and statehouse reporter Chas Sisk explain the maneuvering and some of the politics behind it.
