NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Republican Gov. Bill Haslam is making six more stops around the state to promote his Insure Tennessee plan to extend health coverage to more than 200,000 low-income people.
Haslam kicked off his tour last week at hospitals in Jackson and Memphis. He starts this week's series of events on Monday at Cherokee Health System.
On Tuesday, the governor heads to Walker Comprehensive Health Center in Clarksville, followed by a discussion at Cherokee Health Systems in Chattanooga on Wednesday.
Haslam wraps up the statewide swing on Thursday, with visits to Johnson City Community Health Center, Highlands Medical Center in Sparta and the Primary Care and Hope Clinic in Murfreesboro.
The governor has called a special session on his health care proposal that begins on Feb. 2.
