Task Force Studies Juvenile Justice
Thursday July 27, 2017

It's becoming clearer with each meeting of a special legislative task force that state lawmakers are past time in dealing with juvenile justice system.
Those words came from one of those task force members Wednesday as the group met for a second time in a scheduled six-hour hearing.
Rep. William Lamberth was a prosecutor in Sumner County before being a lawmaker appointed to the task force.
His words came just hours after a teenager was murdered in a public housing shootout near downtown Nashville late Tuesday.
Lamberth has been outspoken that more resources are needed, especially in rural areas for trouble kids.
With the help of researchers from the Pew Charitable Trust, the second session dove into data about the current state of Tennessee's juvenile justice system, but there are already trends which led to creation of the task force.
The next task force meeting is scheduled for September when the task force members say a serious policy discussion will occur about what works and what doesn't in the juvenile justice system.
After the monthly meetings are finished this fall, the goal of the task force is to present legislation next session that will make changes to the juvenile justice system.

AP Thursday July 27, 2017

Planned Parenthood and the American Civil Liberties Union want to join a lawsuit challenging a Tennessee law that requires counseling and a 48-hour waiting period for women seeking abortions.
Planned Parenthood of Middle and East Tennessee, Planned Parenthood Greater Memphis Region and the American Civil Liberties Union of Tennessee filed a motion Wednesday to join the Nashville federal lawsuit.
The ACLU will represent the Knoxville Center for Reproductive Health.
The ACLU says the law punishes women by making them consult with their doctors in person, wait 48 hours and then return for the abortion.
In the same lawsuit, the state attorney general in April agreed to stop enforcing requirements that abortion providers must have hospital admitting privileges and abortion clinics must meet hospital-level surgical standards.
