More Progress!

May 5, 2009

The Tennesssee House Finance Ways and Means Committee PASSED bill SJR0127 today! This is what the capitol.tn.gov site says:

Recommended for passage w/amendments- refer to: Calendar & Rules Committee 5/5/2009

Voice Vote –

  • Ayes Prevail
  • Rep.(s) Brown, Naifeh, Shaw, Sontany requested to be recorded as voting No

I’m not sure what steps are still needed before the full House has its turn to vote. Please monitor the bill’s progress and be prepared to contact your representative to support the bill. It might be best to contact your representative now, in case the remaining steps go quickly.

(Note: There is a brief portion near the middle that needs “listener discretion,” depending on your circumstances (e.g., the presence of children or coworkers who might overhear. Kathy Ireland twice uses a word that may not be suitable for the particular situation where you are listening to the interview. The argument she makes is very valid, but I thought you should be prepared to use discretion.)
