Southerland report
State Senator Steve Southerland says the Senate Judiciary Committee voted this week to strengthen a pro-life stance with the approval of the Human Life Protection Act. The bill seeks to proactively trigger the restoration of Tennessee's abortion law prior to the Roe v. Wade ruling, if and when the power to regulate abortion is returned to the states. A newly created Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives seeks to maximize the effectiveness of organizations serving Tennesseans in need. It aims to facilitate collaboration between state government and faith-based and community organizations working to improve public safety, reduce addiction, strengthen families and communities, and overcome poverty in the state. The Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives will operate without cost to the state. The governor will select the board of directors and executive director of the nonprofit.
