Tennessee Bill on Seniors’ Insurance Discount Heads to Governor

February 24, 2010

Legislation that would give senior drivers in Tennessee a discount on their insurance for taking an online driving course is headed to Gov. Phil Bredesen for his consideration.

The measure sponsored by Republican Rep. Phillip Johnson of Pegram and supported by the AARP was approved 96-0 by the House on Monday. The companion bill was unanimously approved by the Senate last week.

The AARP currently offers an eight-hour driving class for its members, but people who live in rural areas of the state sometimes can’t find a location where they can take it. Insurance discounts are currently offered to those who take the class in-person.
