Via Blake Farmer at WPLN, the UAW has dropped its National Labor Relations Board challenge over the organizing vote at the Chattanooga plant, calling the process flawed.
Casteel calls the National Labor Relations Board review a “toothless tiger.” He points to one other time the UAW was able to get a new election that way. It took six years.
The open-carry vote took the lieutenant governor aback:
“I was caught a little off guard,” said Ramsey. “I’m standing on the dais. What do I do?”
Well, he voted for the bill (SB2424), which would allow anyone who can legally own a firearm to carry it openly without a handgun permit. It passed 25-2 on April 8 with the only two no votes coming from Senate Democratic Caucus Chairman Lowe Finney of Jackson and Sen. Brian Kelsey, R-Germantown.
“Let me assure you, there were many of our members who (were thinking), did that really just pass?,” said Ramsey. “That was one of the most interesting votes I’ve ever seen on the Senate floor: relatively little debate and I think that bill does deserve better debate.
“I feel like the carry-permit system we have now is a good one, that we have a bright line between the good guys and the bad guys, so to speak,” Ramsey said.
Citing a think-tank type, Duane Gang of The Tennessean, writing for USA Today, reports other states will be keeping an eye on Tennessee's free community college program.
