TENNESSEE MUNICIPAL LEAGUE
vs.
BROOK THOMPSON, in his official 
capacity as the State Election      
Coordinator, et al

Court:TSC
                          
First Paragraph:

We granted this expedited appeal pursuant to Tenn. Code Ann. S 16-3
201(d) in order to determine a question of unusual public
importance--whether 1997 Tenn. Pub. Acts, ch. 98, ("the Act"),
violates the Tennessee Constitution.  The Chancery Court held that the
Act is constitutional.  We conclude, however, that the Act violates
Article II, S 17 of the Tennessee Constitution because the body of the
Act is broader than its caption.  Accordingly, we reverse.  A full
opinion based on this order will follow.
