Newly released records show that Tennessee taxpayers have paid more than $8 million since 1992 for health insurance premiums for sitting lawmakers. The Tennessean reports those records show that the state has paid out the most for Johnson City Republican Sen. Rusty Crowe and his family. Records obtained by the newspaper through a public information request show the state paid out $200,000 for Crowe's premiums since he enrolled in the plan in 1992. Premiums paid for the top 10 lawmakers account for $1.9 million of the total. Others in the top 10 include House Speaker Beth Harwell of Nashville, Republican Rep. Bill Dunn of Knoxville, Democratic Rep. Sherry Jones of Nashville and Democratic Rep. Thelma Harper of Nashville.

 


Terminally ill attorney files lawsuit over euthanasia
AP Thursday May 21, 2015

A well-known attorney facing his own terminal illness has filed a lawsuit challenging a Tennessee law that prohibits assisted suicide. The Tennessean reports attorney, businessman and political candidate John Jay Hooker filed the complaint Tuesday in Davidson County Chancery Court against a law which makes it a felony for a doctor or another person to assist in someone's death. Hooker says the law violates the state constitution, which says "power is inherent in the people." The 84-year-old Nashville attorney was diagnosed with terminal cancer, but says his fight for euthanasia is not just for himself. Hooker won the 1970 and 1988 Democratic nominations for governor of Tennessee and most recently ran for the position as an independent in the 2014 election.
