As you probably know, HB0609 which seeks to restore Tennessee to “Free & Equal” elections was debated today in the House Elections and Campaign Finance Subcommittee today.
Here’s the video:
(0:15) Rep Hulsey’s remarks on the importance of the bill
(6:25) Rep Shaw’s remarks on why he opposes the bill
(11:08) The failure of a bill, in spite of a 4 (Yay) – 3 (Nay) voice vote in subcommittee.
We believe this bill would’ve actually passed subcommittee today if the votes were adequately counted.
As such, we’ll be working to appeal this decision within 48hrs.
More details to come soon.
