GOP State Senator Seeks to Rename Lottery Scholarship Program for Cohen 

Steve Cohen, the 9th District’s new congressman, not one to hide his light under a bushel, has been getting ample attention, week by week, from the national media.

Now we learn that the former longtime state senator, though long gone from the state capital, continues to make a name for himself in Nashville, as well.

State Sen. Sen. Tim Burchett (R-Knoxville) has introduced a bill to rename Tennessee’s Hope Scholarship Program the Cohen Hope Scholarship Program in honor of Cohen’s 16-year effort to create the program.
