It appears that several original co-sponsors have dropped this bill like a hot potato.
The current status shows the following still on board: *Jones S, *West, *Pruitt, *Brooks H, *Sontany, *Coleman.
I also know a few folks in the state legislature and will be making a phone call or e-mail. I am amazed at this bill, and disappointed in the sponsors. It appears there are only a few left most from the Nashville area, one from Knoxville area (District 19- H. Brooks), and Middle Tennessee (Rutherford County).
Got a response from Harry Tindell, 13 th district (Knoxville), he says he will vote no if given the opportunity.
For those of you who would like to call your representative the toll free number is 800 449 8366. If you do not know their extension you will have to go thru the menu to get their extension.
Doug Overbey from District 20 (Blount County) has also confirmed his stance against this.
