Senator Drops Counseling Bill

A controversial counseling bill, which would have required the state to write a new code of ethics for licensed counselors and therapists, has been dropped by its sponsor, the Tennessean reports. Sen. Jack Johnson, R-Franklin, said he would abandon plans to proceed with the legislation and instead sign on to another bill, SB 449, which would require changes made by any licensed professionals to their codes of ethics to be reviewed by the attorney general and approved by the state legislature.
