Press Release from Bill Gibbons for Governor, March 21, 2010:
Memphis, TN – Shelby County District Attorney General Bill Gibbons, also a candidate for Tennessee governor, today released this statement in response to the U.S. House vote on health care:
“The U.S. House of Representatives has acted irresponsibly by enacting a so-called health care reform bill that imposes huge unfunded mandates on state governments. If this legislation ultimately becomes law, it will take state funding away from job development projects, our schools, and public safety. It is incredible that a majority of the House acted in such a careless fashion.”
Bill Gibbons, a Republican, is the Shelby County District Attorney General, serving as the top state law enforcement official in Tennessee’s largest jurisdiction. He entered the governor’s race on January 4, 2009. For more information on Bill Gibbons, visit his campaign website at www.Gibbons2010.com.
