Tennessee Legislature Adjourns Sine Die
The Tennessee Legislature adjourned sine die on April 21.
Lawmakers succeeded in approving $140 million for school resource officers, along with $3.3 billion for a roads plan backed by Gov. Bill Lee.
The session also prominently featured the partisan expulsions of Democratic Reps. Justin Pearson and Justin Jones.
Republican Rep. Scotty Campbell resigned in the wake of findings by a bipartisan ethics subcommittee that he had violated the General Assembly’s workplace policy on discrimination and harassment.
Gov. Lee also indicated he plans on calling a special session to act on gun reform after it was left unaddressed in this session, with a date still to be announced.
