Working Tennesseans – HB 0160/SB 0139

SPONSORS: Sen. Bill Ketron, Rep. Glen Casada

LABOR: “Prohibits labor organizations from contributing to any candidate with respect to any election. Creates a Class C misdemeanor for violations.” SB0768 (Sen. Bill Ketron) would make it easier for corporations to make political campaign contributions and this bill would make it more difficult for working people to do so. Not cool.

RECENT ACTION: Taken off notice in Senate State & Local Government on 3/9/11. Referred to House General Subcommittee of State & Local Government on 2/14/11.

NOTE: Doesn’t look like it’s moving forward but we’re still keeping an eye on it just in case.
