Bright & Early: It’s A Gamble Edition

Good morning, Nashville. Governor Phil is still working on figuring out which Very Important Parts of the State Budget will need to be cut in order to make ends meet this year. A few days ago, we heard him consider eliminating funding for neighborhood clinics or just ending all state-sponsored health care programs altogether; yesterday, we saw an enrollment cap on CoverKids. Now we’re hearing reports that the state could be ending all emergency mental health services for adults. Either way, not exactly a banner year for health care in Tennessee.
