Annexation Bill Passes Senate
Friday March 28, 2014

Tennessee cities would be stripped of their legal ability to annex by ordinance under a bill approved Thursday by the state Senate.
Senators voted 27-1 for the bill. The House version remains under consideration.
It would require referendum votes from people living in area that cities wish to annex. The bill would not impact consensual annexations in which property owners ask to come into a city.
Under the bill, beginning on May 16th, 2015, it eliminates cities' current right to annex by ordinance, leaving annexation by consent through a referendum as the only means available.
The bill also continues a current annexation study being conducted by the Tennessee Advisory Commission on Intergovernmental Relations.
