Kyle notes that the 107th General Assembly was the first in decades under the control of a Republican House, Senate and Governor. The Shelby County Democrat says his party was able to do little more than react to a Republican agenda.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP/WMOT) — Middle Tennessee Congressional Rep. Jim Cooper is hosting a free veterans workshop Tuesday at the Tennessee National Guard Armory in Nashville.
More than 40 government agencies and private organizations will be on hand to provide assistance with things like GI benefits, home loan guarantees, benefits and pensions, small business loans, homeowner financing, employment training and educational opportunities.
The workshop is billed as a veterans event, but Congressman Cooper says active duty personnel and family members might also wish to attend.
