Tennessee Covid Special Session Set for October 27

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Tennessee’s top legislative leaders say they have enough support to call a special legislative session to address COVID-19 measures after Republican Gov. Bill Lee declined to do so.

Senate Speaker Randy McNally and House Speaker Cameron Sexton say the special session announced Tuesday will be the third this year and is scheduled for Oct. 27.

The Republican governor Lee has repeatedly resisted requests to hold a special session focused solely on COVID-19 even as GOP lawmakers have become steadily disgruntled at local mandates that have been implemented sporadically around the state.
