NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — With the beginning of February, the 111th Tennessee General Assembly will enter the fourth week of its second session. Already we’ve seen new bills filed and old ones debated again. We’ve already seen a controversial measure on adoption and religious freedom passed and quickly signed into law by the Governor Lee. We’ve seen other long -standing controversies over issues such as abortion renewed, and new debates begin. We’re also seeing a growing dispute between Governor Bill Lee and the Republican Super Majority over allowing more refugees to enter the state. To give his thoughts about the session so far and what lies ahead as Governor Bill Lee prepares to give his annual State of the State Address to lawmakers and the public next Monday, we welcome House Speaker Cameron Sexton back to INSIDE POLITICS this week.
