As the Tennessee General Assembly begins to wind down for the year, TBA Public Policy and Government Affairs Director Berkley Schwarz and Adams and Reese attorney and TBA lobbyist Brad Lampley discuss where several TBA-sponsored bills currently stand on today’s episode of the Legislative Updates podcast. The TBA, with much help from President Michelle Greenway Sellers, was able to work with sponsors on an amendment that removed a cap on attorney’s fees from House Bill 1386/Senate Bill 282. The bill to eliminate the professional privilege tax, SB884/HB519, is currently in budget discussions and Lampley is optimistic that the tax will see “some degree of reduction." All that and more on today’s episode, which can be found on the TBA’s Facebook page, website and anywhere you listen to podcasts.
