Tennessee House Rep. Bill Sanderson, R-Kenton, says he is stepping down from the statehouse, citing a family matter and demands of his business, the Tennessean reports. Sanderson, who owns a winery in Kenton, said his business has increased significantly in recent years and he's been unable to adequately maintain it while being a part-time lawmaker. Additionally, he cited his son-in-law's battle with throat cancer and a need to spend time with his family. Sanderson also rejected rumors circulating around the legislative that House Speaker Glen Casada had tried to pressure him with compromising information, the Tennessee Journal reported.
