Second Outbreak of Avian Flu Detected in Tennessee
tn.gov/Peg Broadcasting News Friday March 10, 2017

A second outbreak of bird flu has been detected in Tennessee. The state veterinarian confirms that a flock of chickens at a commercial poultry breeding operation in Giles County has tested positive for low pathogenic avian influenza (LPAI). The company that operates it is a different company from the one associated with the recent detection of highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) in Lincoln County. At this time, officials do not believe one premises sickened the other. On March 6, routine screening tests at the Giles County premises indicated the presence of avian influenza in the flock. State and federal laboratories confirmed the existence of H7N9 LPAI in tested samples. As a precaution, the affected flock was depopulated and has been buried. The premises is under quarantine. Domesticated poultry within a 10 kilometer (6.2 mile) radius of the site are also under quarantine and are being tested and monitored for illness. To date, all additional samples have tested negative for avian influenza and no other flocks within the area have shown signs of illness. The Giles County LPAI incident is similar to the Lincoln County HPAI incident in that both the low pathogenic and highly pathogenic viruses are an H7N9 strain of avian influenza. USDAs National Veterinary Services Laboratories confirms the H7N9 virus that affected the Lincoln County premises is of North American wild bird lineage. It is not the same as the China H7N9 virus affecting Asia and is genetically distinct.

According to officials, neither LPAI nor HPAI pose a risk to the food supply. No affected animals entered the food chain. The risk of a human becoming ill with avian influenza during poultry outbreaks is very low. However, out of an abundance of caution, officials with the Tennessee Department of Health and Tennessee Department of Agriculture are working together to monitor the health of individuals who are working on either premises or had contact with affected birds.

Report a sudden increase in the number of sick birds or bird deaths to the state veterinarians office at 615- 837-5120 and/or USDA at 1-866-536-7593.

Voucher-Like Program Considered
AP Thursday March 9, 2017

Tennessee lawmakers are considering a sweeping expansion of a voucher-like program that is estimated to cost $71 million.

Supporters of the new proposal say it gives parents unprecedented choice and allows them to customize their children's education in a way that best serves them. Opponents have called it vouchers on steroids and say it threatens public schools.

The proposal would let parents get the money used to pay for a public school - roughly $7,000 per child per year - and use it for approved expenses. The money could pay for such things as private school tuition, homeschool curriculum and field trips.

Rep. Roger Kane, who sponsored the House bill, said parents would get money loaded quarterly on debit cards that would be subject to audits.
