New State Laws Go into Effect

While Tennessee's new law allowing would-be gun owners to get a concealed carry handgun permit with video training is garnering the most news coverage, there are 17 other new laws that went into effect on Jan. 1. The Times Free Press has a run-down of some of them, including new requirements for health insurance and medical billing transparency; new protections for elderly and vulnerable adults who are victims of sexual exploitation; a requirement that the state health insurance plan allow proton radiation therapy to treat cancer; a new grant program for volunteer fire departments; and new requirements for residential contractors.
