Tennessee House Select Committee On Rules Kills Rule Change That Would Have Provided More Transparency In Government Operations

Jan 9, 2024 | Political News

Yesterday at 11 am, The House Select Committee On Rules met with those who presented proposals for rule changes in the Tennessee House of Representatives as they head into this new 113th legislative session. 

Several representatives prepared rule changes for the committee’s review, both Democrat and Republican presenting their rule changes in hopes that the committee would approve some if not all. 

Despite the presentations, some of which were extensive, (Justin Jones (D-D52-Nashville) had a proposal that included 17 rules changes), none of the proposals were approved or passed by the committee. 

One particular rule change presented, which seemed to garner both democrat and republican support, if passed, would have provided expanded transparency in our government processes.
