Reporters yawned their way through a press conference on the amendments this afternoon. Said House Democratic leader Craig Fitzhugh:
This is a major and radical change in Tennessee's long-held policy of protecting the rights of property owners. We know the majority wants to pass this bill and they want to pass it quickly. It's made a pretty quick dash through the Senate and the House. In one committee in the House, the bill came out in less than six minutes. So we don't know how long we'll have as a minority party tomorrow to voice our concerns about this bill. That's why we're here today.
