Tennessee General Assembly Adjourns 2015 Session
Both chambers of the Tennessee General Assembly adjourned the 2015 session on Wednesday, April 22.
The session was highlighted by the passage of legislation allowing handgun-carry permit holders to be armed in any state park and a failed attempt to make the Bible the official state book. Lawmakers also approved the annual budget after rejecting a renewed attempt to authorize Medicaid expansion.
The 2016 session of the 109th General Assembly will convene at noon on Tuesday, January 12, 2016.
