Local mothers attend historic Katie Beckett law signing ceremony in Nashville


TRI-CITIES (WJHL) – It was a historic week for thousands across the state of Tennessee.

Several mothers from the Tri-Cities region attended the ceremony, which will now see children with complex disabilities now receive healthcare – no matter their parents’ income.

You can learn more about the work accomplished locally. Mallorie Hatcher visited News Channel 11 last weekend to discuss program.
