A bill that would create a state body to investigate civil rights cold cases passed the Tennessee House yesterday. Sponsored by Rep. Johnnie Turner, D-Memphis, the measure would set up the Tennessee Civil Rights Crimes Information, Reconciliation and Research Center, which would delve into unsolved civil rights crimes. It also passed the Senate on Monday, where it is sponsored by Sen. Mark Norris, R-Collierville. It now heads to Gov. Haslam's desk for final approval.
