Executive Order?

An Executive Order could be one possible avenue of insuring that the legislative intent of the 107th General Assembly with regard to the de-funding of Planned Parenthood is respected:

The appropriate legal language may not be so direct, but issuing an order to enforce the budget as the Legislature intended may very well be within the Governor's authority. Sure, the General Assembly could override Governor Haslam, but it is doubtful they would want to do it-especially since both Lieutenant Governor Ron Ramsey and House Speaker Beth Harwell havce both said that they are going to pursue permanent de-funding of Planned Parenthood in next year's session.
