The Bills Coming Due
Fewer bills are being filed at the Tennessee General Assembly, which can be both a positive and a negative
"On the one hand, there are fewer bills being introduced in the first place, and that means that there are going to be fewer new laws and should be less new government regulation, which is a good thing," State Senator Stacey Campfield (R-Knoxville) said to The Examiner Monday. "However, we weren't just sent here to keep new needless regulations from passing, we were sent here to cut the size and scope of State government and reform education, and those things do require some pretty extensive new bills that may become new laws. We don't want the limits in bill filing to keep needed measures from making it to the floor for a vote."
