TN Legislative Session Ends With Passage $42.6 Billion of Spending Plan

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Tennessee lawmakers have adjourned their annual legislative session, signing off on a $42.6 billion spending plan for the upcoming year. The budget includes a one-week sales tax holiday on restaurants, bars and groceries, an infusion of cash into capital maintenance and improvements, and a big paydown into the state’s retirement system.

 

The GOP-controlled General Assembly also passed several bills related to transgender students this year. One bill would require businesses or government facilities open to the public to post a sign if they let transgender people use multi-person bathrooms, locker rooms or changing rooms associated with their gender identity.
