The Tennessee House of Representatives will vote on its next speaker Aug. 23, when Gov. Bill Lee is calling lawmakers to return to Nashville for a historic special legislative session, the Tennessean reports. Lee signed a proclamation making the call today, saying a special session to elect a new speaker was "in the best interest of our state." Current House Speaker Glen Casada, R-Franklin, will resign from his leadership position Aug. 2 — his 60th birthday — though his replacement likely will be determined in a July 24 House Republican Caucus meeting.
