Tennessee Senators Vote for Travel Ban Resolution

Last Tuesday six legislators from the Senate Finance, Ways and Means Committee, including Sen. Thelma Harper (D-Nashville), voted in favor of Senate Joint Resolution 111 sponsored by Sen. Mike Bell (R-Riceville) that urges state officials to consider banning state-sponsored travel to states that have banned such travel to Tennessee. The resolution is an attempt to discourage California and other like-minded states from banning travel based on whether they like Tennessee’s public policies. California’s statutory travel ban came as a result of last year’s counselor’s bill that FACT tracked. The resolution will be before the full Senate next week.
