The Nashville Scene has a roundup of several controversial bills at the Tennessee legislature that are officially dead for the year. Several bills related to medical cannabis were rolled due to lack of committee time, but Sen. Steve Dickerson, R-Nashville, promises to bring them back next year. The “fetal heartbeat” bill, which enjoyed widespread support, was pulled by its Senate sponsor, Mike Bell, R-Riceville, for concerns about potential legal pitfalls in the current version. A bill allowing teachers to carry guns to school was taken off notice by its sponsor, Rep. Ryan Williams, R-Cookeville.
