New House Judiciary Committee member G.A. Hardaway says the panel will hold hearings on embattled state Rep. David Byrd no matter what the state attorney general opines, the Daily Memphian reports. Judiciary Committee Chair Rep. Michael Curcio confirmed the committee doesn’t need the attorney general’s opinion, but noted that Speaker Cameron Sexton asked him to wait before starting an investigation. The response could determine the committee’s direction.
