CAsa goes to nashville-2.jpg

Thirty-one advocates joined together to hear Rep. Tony Shipley, R-Kingsport, present HB613 to the House Transportation Subcommittee. During his presentation, it was obvious that he is committed to helping abused and neglected children. HB613 is now known as the "Seat Belt Law" and if passed will provide substantial funding to Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) programs throughout the state. CASA applauds Rep. Shipley's efforts and planned to be back on the Hill on March 13, which was CASA Day on the Hill. Tennessee CASA provides training and technical assistance to 29 local programs serving 46 counties. Last year, 1,379 CASA volunteers provided 114,158 hours of service for 5,471 children. For more information, contact Lee Chiomos, 456-0691,
