TSEA representatives at the State Capitol before this week’s bill filing deadline successfully secured legislative sponsors for all our proposed bills.
Below is a list of bill numbers and sponsors in both the House and Senate.
Longevity for All
SB0689 Sen. Jackson
HB0900 Rep. Sparks
TSEA believes employees should not be divided into two classifications for pay and benefits. The first step in correcting this is to bring back longevity for all state employees.
Burden of Proof
SB0621 Sen. Hensley
HB0644 Rep. T. Hill
TSEA believes the State of Tennessee bears the burden of proof when they take disciplinary action against an employee that is appealable. This bill would clarify the relevant language in state statute.
