A measure to create special assessment districts in Knox County to lay the groundwork for a light rail transit project failed in the Tennessee Senate Transportation and Safety Committee today, Knoxnews reports. Rep. Eddie Smith, R-Knoxville, and Sen. Becky Duncan Massey, R-Knoxville, sponsored the bill. Knoxville City Councilman Joe Hultquist said that the project will continue, and that he will bring the measure up again to lawmakers next year.
