Handgun carry permit holders will soon be allowed to bring firearms into Legislative Plaza. Senate Speaker Ron Ramsey said the new policy will take effect in a matter of days.
Thursday morning, Ramsey told reporters that he and House Speaker Beth Harwell had decided to remove the signs prohibiting guns in Legislative Plaza.
He said guns would continue to be banned in the Capitol building, and any changes with regard to the Capitol would need to come from the governor.
Ramsey said they had planned to remove the signs last month, but the Tennessee Highway Patrol, which handles security in the building, asked for time to review the new policy.
The Tennessee Safe Project released a statement Thursday saying they believe allowing guns inside the Legislative Plaza will pose an unnecessary risk to lawmakers, staff and members of the public.
The House sponsor of a proposal to create a school voucher program in Tennessee says he doesn't have the votes to pass the measure aimed at covering private school tuition for children attending some the state's worst public schools.
Republican state Rep. Bill Dunn of Knoxville called off a scheduled floor vote on Thursday morning before taking up a series of proposed amendments.
Dunn had offered to limit the measure to apply to just the state's four largest counties, and had even been willing to have it apply only to just Shelby County.
Opponents had raised concerns of siphoning funding from public school systems to pay for the vouchers worth about $7,000 per student.
The Senate overwhelmingly approved its version of the bill last year.
The Warren County Pioneers and Lady Pioneers travel to Crossville Friday night for a district basketball doubleheader with the Panthers and Lady Panthers of Stone Memorial.

The games with Coffee County that were snowed out this past Tuesday night will be played Saturday at 3pm at Charlie Dalton Gym.
The Tennessee Highway Patrol will be conducting a seat belt checkpoint in Warren County Friday night on State Highway 56.
The Highway Patrol says a high number of vehicle occupants killed in fatal crashes were unrestrained, so the THP has elected to create an enforcement campaign aimed at drastically reducing the number of unrestrained drivers and passengers.
The THP says it has found seat belt checkpoints to be an effective means of enforcing the seat belt and child restraint laws of Tennessee.
