Tennessee’s Proposed Constitutional Amendments are on your Nov. 8, 2022, ballot.

NASHVILLE, TN (SPECIAL TO WLAF) – State Representative Dennis Powers told WLAF that “I have had more calls over the constitutional amendments over the past weeks than are on the current ballot more than anything else.” Powers hopes the above graphic simplifies and explains what each amendment will do.

“Usually, when an amendment goes on the ballot, there is 5 plus years of bi-partisan support for them, because they have to pass by a two-thirds vote in both the House and Senate in two successive General Assemblies.  Then they are placed on the ballot during the next governor’s race and have to receive 50 percent plus one of total number of votes that vote in the governor’s race,” said Powers.

Powers calls it a difficult hurdle, meant to be so, because the founders of the state wanted to make it difficult to change the constitution. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 11/01/2022-6AM)
