The Tennessee Senate has approved legislation that will bring significant improvements to Tennessee’s criminal justice system by focusing on treating addiction, and getting people leaving the system back to work, among other provisions.
These conservative reforms are a huge win for public safety, and taxpayers. Addiction and not having a job are two major factors that drive people to reoffend. As long as they remain untreated, addicts are more likely to reoffend. Having a decent job is a key factor in reducing recidivism, and poverty is also a leading recidivism factor.
People who have committed low-level offenses are going to be released from incarceration one day. It only makes sense to address their individual issues and set them on a better path when they return to society.
The legislation removes unnecessary government licensing barriers to work for former offenders, updates community supervision practices to concentrate on risk, and offers alternatives to jail where appropriate, like drug treatment. More serious offenders who currently would be released without supervision, will have one year of supervision added, further protecting public safety.
Governor Lee deserves immense credit for leading the charge on these bills, along with legislative leaders, Speaker Sexton, Senate Majority Leader Johnson, and sponsors, including Rep. Curcio, Rep. Lamberth, Sen. Stevens, Sen. Bowling, and Sen. Yager, among many others who helped these needed reforms become reality.

We Often Feel Like David Taking on Giants
Today’s Goliath is the Mainstream Media Industrial Complex that brainwashes the masses.
Our mission is very straightforward: To counter the false narratives and nefarious agendas destroying America today. It isn’t easy for obvious reasons; despite incredible growth over the last year we are still a very tiny fish in a huge media pond. But we’re fighting and we will continue to do so, Lord willing, for as long as we possibly can. The battle for America’s present and future is too important for us to back down to the giants that stand in our way.
We need help. I don’t want to say “desperately,” but the need is definitely great. If you have the means, please donate through our GivingFuel page, PayPal, or our Substack page. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
