The State Senate approved major law and order legislation this week as the General Assembly worked diligently towards adjournment of the 2014 legislative session. In addition, the Senate Judiciary Committee approved two bills sponsored by Sen. Mae Beavers that further emphasize our 2nd Amendment rights. Finally, the state budget also moved front and center, as Governor Bill Haslam presented an amendment to his fiscal year 2014-2015 spending plan, identifying $160 million in reductions due to an ongoing decline in revenue collections.
