From Local 3 News: Several new laws are set to begin in Tennessee on January 1st of 2024. Here are some of them.
One new law will require a GPS tracking divide on breathalyzers that are installed on cars owned by people convicted of a DUI. The devices can tag the location every time the car is started, when it randomly requires a breathalyzer, and when a test is skipped.
Another law will require DCS to make sure children in juvenile detention facilities and youth development centers can access chaplain services.
A law will require licensed pharmacists to inspect drug take back donations before they are dispensed, and require pharmacists to store them in a secure area.
The state will begin offering reimbursements for handgun safety courses at federal licensed gun shops. The Department of Safety will pay up to $30 to everyone who completes the course for the first time. You can read more, here.
A law known as “Abrial’s Law” will prohibit a parent being penalized for making a complaint about domestic violence or child abuse while involved in child custody hearings. It will also prevent the removal of a child from one parent to another with a “deficient relationship” when they have been accused of abuse.
Local farmers markets will have some new rules as well. The state will enforce new food safety rules at public farmers markets across the state. Some vendors will be required to purchase a “farmers market food unit permit” if they will be cooking and serving food with improvised equipment for cleanliness.
