Sen. Brian Kelsey (TN- R) is just one of the state Republicans urging Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee (R) to call a special session that would limit the power of local governments making COVID-19 mandates.
Kelsey’s push comes as all 73 members of Tennesee’s House Republican caucus, including House Speaker Cameron Sexton, sent a letter to Gov. Lee’s desk asking him to call a special session.CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD THE KWAM NEWSTALK APP FOR CONSERVATIVE NEWS AND TALK ACROSS THE MID-SOUTH!
There are two paths to the special session: The governor could call it himself, or two-thirds of both the House and Senate could make it happen on their own. Kelsey is more hopeful for the latter.
“We may have to end up doing it on our own,” Kesley told host of Wake Up Memphis Tim Van Horn. “I do appreciate the 73 Republican colleagues in the House for making a bold pronouncement, and I think that will start to put pressure on my colleagues in the state Senate to join.”
