Food Stamp Legislation Proposed
AP Monday January 16, 2017

A Tennessee lawmaker has introduced legislation seeking to ban the use of food stamps to buy items without nutritional value.
Republican Rep. Sheila Butt of Columbia says banned items would be those high in calories, sugar and fat, such as sodas, ice cream, candy, cookies and cake. The measure would also prohibit grocers from selling banned items to people on the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program.
Butt's bill would require the state Department of Human Services to seek a waiver from the federal government to establish a list of which food items would be banned for food stamp recipients, using the recommendations of the U.S. Department of Agriculture as a guide.
More than 1 million Tennesseans received food stamp assistance as of November, totaling nearly $135 million.

Lawmakers Face Feb. 9th Deadline
AP Monday January 16, 2017

Tennessee lawmakers have until Feb. 9 to file legislation they want to have considered during this year's legislative session.
The House and Senate on Thursday completed their organizational sessions that involved electing the speakers, assigning committees and adopting rules. Lawmakers will take most of the rest of the month off until Republican Gov. Bill Haslam delivers his State of the State address on Jan. 30.
Any lawmaker seeking to have legislation filed after the Feb. 9 deadline will have to gain approval from the chamber's late-filed bills committee.
Much of that downtime will involve filing bills through the Legislature's legal department.
House members are limited to filing 15 bills each, and the chamber's rules say the body won't take up legislation unless it also has a Senate sponsor.
