Jr. (R-TN) announced today that the Department of Transportation has awarded the National Park Service $10 million of Federal Lands Transportation Program funds that will aid in the completion of the 16 mile section of the Foothills Parkway between Wears Valley and Walland Tenn. “I have visited the location of this project on numerous occasions,” Congressman Duncan said, “and the spectacular panoramic views for the Great Smoky Mountains National Park should be accessible to the millions of visitors who come to East Tennessee for recreation every year.” Last April, Congressman Duncan wrote to the Secretary of Transportation, Anthony Foxx, in support of the National Park Service’s application. “I am pleased to once again to work with the Park Service on this important project,” said Duncan.

The Legend of Coach Pat Summitt
“Tennessee lost a true legend today. While she holds NCAA records for men or women sports and won many championships and awards, her most impressive is the 100 percent graduation rate of her players. “Pat Summitt was certainly the most admired and respected woman in Tennessee, sports, and this Nation. Her fans and influence reach far beyond the borders of Tennessee. “I had the privilege of being her honorary coach twice. She also invited me to join her on her many trips to the White House including when she won the Presidential Medal of Freedom Award, the Nation’s highest civilian honor. “She was a true friend to me and all of Tennessee.” ###
"How I Was Wrong About ObamaCare" by Dr. Bob Kocher.
  Dr. Bob Kocher, Special Assistant to President Obama for Healthcare and Economic Policy from 2009-2010, writes for the Wall Street Journal... I was wrong. Wrong about an important part of ObamaCare.

I believed then that the consolidation of doctors into larger physician groups was inevitable and desirable under the ACA. I joined my White House health-care colleagues— Ezekiel Emanuel and Nancy-A
Duncan Introduces Legislation to Assist Charitable Health Care Providers
  WASHINGTON – Congressman John J. Duncan, Jr. (R-TN.) introduced the HEALTHIER Act to assist charitable organizations across the Country providing free healthcare to those in need. Currently, many of these organizations have difficulties recruiting large numbers of licensed doctors in the states where these free health clinics are conducted. The HEALTHIER Act will give a financial reward to any state that allows licensed medical professionals to travel from other states to volunteer their services. Ten states already have such “volunteer-friendly” laws. “Unlike many recent healthcare initiatives, the HEALTHIER Act is not a federal mandate,” Duncan said. “It does not require new spending. It respects states’ rights. It makes those who cannot afford good healthcare a priority and unites them with people in the medical profession, who are always searching for ways to help others.” This bill is supported by many of the leading health organizations like the Federation of S
