NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Two Republican state legislators are pushing a measure aimed at allowing local governments to display the Ten Commandments in county courthouses or on public grounds in Tennessee.
Sen. Mike Bell of Riceville and Rep. Matthew Hill of Jonesboro have introduced a bill authorizing counties and cities to set up displays of historical documents and monuments and writings, as the bill reads, "recognized to commemorate freedom and the rich history of Tennessee and the United States."
MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WMOT) -- Three of Tennessee's congressional representatives have signed up to take "dates" to tonight's State of the Union speech.
The political action group No Labels is sponsoring the initiative that asks representatives to arrange to sit with members of the opposite political party at the president's speech to promote political civility.
No Labels launched the dates program at last year's State of the Union address, shortly after Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was shot at a political event in Arizona.
