The Tennessee General Assembly is appealing a judge’s dismissal of its lawsuit against the federal government over the refugee resettlement program, the Associated Press reports. The lawsuit, filed in March 2017, argued that Tennessee spends money on health care and education as a part of the program, which the state in 2008 officially stopped participating in. The lawsuit did not have the backing of Gov. Bill Haslam or Attorney General Herbert Slatery, and is being handled by the Thomas More Law Center.
