arizona law in tennessee

Today the Tennessean has an article detailing the plans to produce a bill that is similar to the Arizona immigration bill in the 2011 Tennessee State Legislature. This should come as no surprise because last year after the bill was passed in Arizona the Tennessee House voted 67-27 commending Arizona on their bill.

State Senator Bill Ketron R-Murfreesboro plans to file a similar bill by Thursday.

Of course the Tennessean gives very small mention to what the bill will actually be about or details about the bill. Instead most of the article is spent talking about special interests and their impact and influence on the bill as well as the negative economic impact a bill like this would have. It’s unfortunate that this is viewed so negatively by the Tennessean however conservatives can take solace in knowing that with the big Republican majority in Tennessee this bill should easily pass.
