As a citizen of the State of Tennessee I am very concerned about and oppose TennCare's proposed Amendment 38, which would impose work requirements on low-income parents enrolled in health coverage. TennCare's proposal is barely outlined and has many problems. It will eviscerate the already-limited funding for the safety net in Tennessee. For these reasons, I agree with the comments of the 38 state and local organizations that submitted the attached letter.
