SEXTON LOOKING AT CUTTING STATE FUNDS TO NASHVILLE

Tennessee House Speaker Cameron Sexton is warning Nashville officials that he might attempt to withhold state funding because of the city’s recent executive order discouraging cooperation with immigration officials. Last week, Nashville Mayor David Briley signed an executive order criticizing Tennessee’s anti-sanctuary cities law as “immoral” and “dangerous.” The law currently allows the state to withhold some funding from local governments that don’t cooperate with immigration officials. Sexton says he’s looking over a variety of options to possibly introduce during the 2020 legislative session that could reduce state funding to Nashville.
