I just got this from TFA:
The restaurant bill - HB 0962 - came out of the House originally with both an 11pm curfew and also a prohibition on "age restricted" restaurants (which included restaurants where smoking would be allowed). The Senate, last week, rejected these two restrictions and passed - for the 4th year in a row - a restaurant bill with no restrictions on handgun permit holders.
The House took that matter up in full session today. Rep. Curry Todd (R.) is the House sponsor. Rep. Joe McCord (R.) is a co-prime sponsor and also spoke on the bill. Rep. McCord made a motion to reject the Senate's amendment (removal of the restrictions). That "nonconcurring" or rejecting motion by McCord passed on a vote of 45 to 44 with 2 present and not voting. The voting details are not known at this time but will be posted on the TFAOnline Forum as soon as they are available.
The effect of this disappointing move by the House was to send the bill now back to the Senate which has to decide whether it really wants to keep its amendment which deleted the restrictions or whether it will accept the original House version which has the restrictions. If the Senate does not adopt the House's restrictions, then the bill would likely be sent to a conference committee. A conference committee would try to resolve the problems and would come back with a "report" on its recommendaton. That recommendation would be subject to a up or down vote.
Looks like there are a lot of representatives in the House - Democrat and Republican - who really don't trust Tennessee's permit holders. Maybe something needs to be done about that.
