The likelihood of the House hearing a resolution calling for Rep. David Byrd's expulsion on Friday is waning, the Tennessean reports. Rep. Gloria Johnson, D-Knoxville, filed a resolution to be heard during Friday's special legislative session that would oust Byrd, but House Minority Leader Karen Camper confirmed the item will not be placed on the House calendar. House Majority Leader William Lamberth, R-Portland, said that it would need to be brought up under the "unfinished business" portion of the meeting. It's unclear who made the decision not to include the resolution on the calendar, the paper reports.
