MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WMOT/TNS) -- A report released this week by the Annie E. Casey Foundation looks at the impact federal programs have on poverty rates.
The report finds those programs cut the percentage of Tennessee children living in poverty by half. The Tennessee Commission on Children and Youth’s Linda O’Neil says that in spite of that assistance, 17 percent of the state’s children still live below the poverty line.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP/WMOT) — Tennessee’s winter storm death toll has now risen to 30, with another Winter Storm Advisory in effect through Wednesday morning.
