Sponsors of the Vetoed Ag Gag Bill Will Try Again

After Gov. Bill Haslam vetoed the so-called “Ag Gag” bill, sponsors Rep. Andy Holt, R-Dresden, and Sen. Dolores Gresham, R-Somerville, are planning to try again in 2014. Knoxnews reports that the two legislators issued a joint statement saying there would be no override attempt, but they plan to file a new bill with revisions aimed at meeting objections from Haslam and questions about the bill’s constitutionality raised by Attorney General Bob Cooper.
