A proposal to amend the state constitution to say that God is the source of Tennesseans’ liberties has failed in the House. The measure sponsored by Republican Rep. Micah Van Huss of Jonesborough received a 3-3 vote in the House Civil Justice Subcommittee on Wednesday. Measures need a majority vote to advance. The proposed addition to the Tennessee Constitution would have read: “We recognize that our liberties do not come from governments, but from almighty God.”
