Crowe, who is Chairman of the Senate General Welfare, Health and Human Services Committee, was appointed to the special committee by Lt. Governor Ron Ramsey.
The Long Term Care Oversight Committee consists of 10 of Tennessee’s 132 legislators. It is charged with monitoring Tennessee’s system for providing health care services to the state’s disabled and elderly citizens, and looking for ways to improve those services.
