In the Flip Flop Government News category, Tennessee completely gutted SB1736 by amending it, completely "deleting all language" that mattered in the first place now making it worth less than the time they spent on it.
I am ashamed I might have for one moment celebrated some spark of government thought. I am embarrassed beyond all measure I missed this while originally posting it, and I apologize sincerely. Nothing changed in TN.
But nothing changes for you either. #drypractice
