“As parents across the country face empty shelves at the grocery store, we’re reminded just how important a stable supply chain is for Tennessee families.

We thank grocers and retailers for doing their part as we pull every lever to give Tennesseans in crisis the resources they need – but ultimately, it’s time for the federal government to do all they can to deregulate, ease restrictions and get formula back on the shelves.”
