Tennessee House Expected to Address Veto Override As Early As Today, June 4.

Friday, June 4, 2010

Late Thursday, June 3, the Tennessee State House in accordance with the adopted rules, received the proper notice from the Senate regarding Governor Phil Bredesen’s (D) veto of Senate Bill 3012.  As a result, the House can now consider overriding the Governor’s veto during the unfinished business portion of the House Calendar as early as today, June 4.    


Sponsored by State Senator Doug Jackson (D-25) and State Representative Curry Todd (R-95), SB 3012 would allow a person who has a valid right-to-carry permit to carry a firearm for self-defense in restaurants where alcohol may be served, as long as the permit holder is not consuming alcohol or is not otherwise prohibited by posting provisions. 


The Tennessee General Assembly's 2010 Session is expected to adjourn Saturday, June 5.
