Tennessee's political advocates have announced their legislative priorities for 2016.

They have outlined six priorities for state Democrats which would be enacted if the party had control of state legislature.

“There's six of them. The first is ethics and oversight. The second is quality affordable healthcare. The third is making work pay for ordinary Tennesseans. The fourth is public money for public schools. The fifth is access to a ballot box for everyone who is eligible. And the sixth is criminal justice reform,” said Mary Mancini, Chair of the TN Democratic Party

Mancini also said that there must be a focus on the needs of every day Tennesseeans to ensure opportunity for all.
