Press Release

WASHINGTON – U.S. Rep. Jim Cooper (TN-05) today issued the following statement after state lawmakers announced a legislative task force to address access to health care:

“Tennesseans waited two years while Governor Haslam negotiated a plan with the federal government. Then the House never even got a chance to vote on it,” Rep. Cooper said. “Now we have to wait at least another year? Cancer patients don’t have that kind of time.”
