Republicans Decide to End Session This Week

Posted By on Wed, Apr 17, 2013 at 10:55 AM

Citizens of Nashville, rejoice! The annual Invasion of the Rubes is about to end.

State House Republicans just voted 30-23 to join the Senate in going home by Friday, rather than quitting today and coming back for another week of anguish.

House Speaker Beth Harwell told the Republican caucus there still are 40 bills to debate this session, in addition to the state budget.

They include her state charter authorizer proposal to stick it to the Metro school board for denying the Great Hearts application last year, and the "ag gag" bill to curtail prosecutions for animal cruelty at factory farms and slaughterhouses.
