The Tennessee attorney general's office says it would defend an amended abortion bill in court if it becomes law, despite previously calling its key requirements "constitutionally suspect."
Attorney General Herbert Slatery's spokesman says "the law to some degree is unsettled" surrounding the legislation, which would ban abortions after 20 weeks if doctors determine the fetus is viable. It wouldn't apply in medical emergencies or if the mother faced serious risks.
The bill is in a House committee Tuesday and could receive a Senate floor vote this week.
Previously, Slatery's opinion said the bill impermissibly criminally punishes doctors using "good faith medical judgment." Anti-abortion advocates contend an amendment has been added to address that concern.
Gov. Bill Haslam's proposed budget amendment includes $50 million for a new Tennessee State Library and Archives building.
Finance Commissioner Larry Martin said Tuesday that the combined $40 million from the state and $10 million from the Secretary of State's Office represents about half of the projected cost for the facility.
Martin says the second half of the funding is expected to be included in next year's spending plan.
The Library and Archives' current facility is 65 years old and has faced moisture issues and space limitations.
The new facility is planned to be built across from the new state museum that is under construction near the state Capitol in Nashville.
A McMinnville man was arrested last week after being found in possession of drugs during a traffic stop in DeKalb County.
The DeKalb County Sheriff's Office has charged 38 year old James Joseph Mingle of Drake Road with possession of meth for sale or delivery. He was also cited for simple possession of a schedule six drug, being marijuana, and simple possession of a schedule three drug, violation of the registration law, violation of the light law, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Authorities say Mingle's truck was pulled over for a head light violation. A search of the vehicle reportedly turned up a quarter of an ounce of marijuana, two baggies of meth, a glass pipe and digital scales.
Mingle was jailed under a $5,000 bond. His court date is May 11th.
