Morning Round-up: Rail Transit System Meeting and “How To Get A Job” Sessions
Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam says he has signed a bill that allows mental health counselors to refuse to treat patients based on the therapist’s religious or personal beliefs.
The American Counseling Association called the legislation an “unprecedented attack” on the counseling profession and said Tennessee was the only state to ever pass such a law.
Supporters say the bill protects the rights of therapists and allows them to refer patients to more appropriate counselors.
The Chattanooga community is invited to attend the third in a series of public meetings about a potential new rail transit system.
The Chattanooga Rail Transit Implementation Study aims to explore the re-introduction of passenger rail service, potentially returning to a 160-year tradition as a national railroad leader.
Attendees will learn more about the various alternatives considered, including the preferred route alternative.
That event happens today from 5:30 – 7:30 pm at the Chattanooga Choo Choo.
The Chattanooga Chamber and Tennessee Career Center will host two free “How To Get A Job 101” learning sessions today.
Human resources directors from local businesses will present information on topics ranging from resume writing and online applications to interviewing and appropriate follow-up.
Session 1 will be held from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m., with Session 2 from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. at Brainerd Crossroads.
