More District Attorneys General Join Opioid Lawsuit
WBIR Friday January 12, 2018

District Attorney General Lisa Zavogiannis is among five Tennessee District Attorneys General that have filed suit against opioid producers.
District Attorneys General from the 13th, 16th, 17th, 22nd and 31st Judicial Districts filed suit in Cumberland County claiming that Purdue Pharma L.P. and its related companies knowingly participated in the illegal opioid market by directing the drugs to 19 Tennessee counties. It also claims they misrepresented the nature of the opioids and overprescribed them.
The lawsuit alleges that the drug producers embarked on a fraudulent campaign to convince physicians that opioids carried a low risk of addiction and were therefore appropriate for non-acute problems such as chronic pain.

House Speaker Proposes Medicaid Work Requirements
AP Friday January 12, 2018

Tennessee House Speaker Beth Harwell has filed legislation to pursue TennCare work requirements for able-bodied adults without young children.
The bill directs the state to file a federal waiver to impose "reasonable" work requirements for able-bodied, working age adults without dependent children younger than 6.
Earlier Thursday, House Democratic Minority Leader Craig Fitzhugh said that if Medicaid were expanded under the Affordable Care Act, he would support work requirements and copays.
Lawmakers killed a Medicaid expansion proposal by Gov. Bill Haslam in 2015. The administration doesn't plan to revive it this year.
