NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Today, Tennessee Governor Bill Lee released the following statement in response to the court lifting the injunction on the Education Savings Account (ESA) program passed by the Lee Administration in 2019.

“Today the court removed the final roadblock to getting Memphis and Nashville families additional options for high-quality education,” said Gov.
