Low Lead Levels in Tennessee Water
AP Monday April 11, 2016

Tennessee's drinking water generally has lead levels well below those that have raised concerns in Flint, Michigan. That's according to an Associated Press survey of U.S. Environmental Protection Agency data.
In recent years, Tennessee has had only one case of problematic lead levels. That was in the Elizabethton area. The utility there was able to make changes that have brought the lead levels down, and the water has tested under the EPA limit for the past year.
Tennessee's lead testing is coordinated by the Department of Environment and Conservation, which is taking several new steps in response to the Flint crisis. They include changes to the Tennessee Safe Drinking Water Act that will require water systems to inform customers more quickly about sampling results and lead problems.

Court Asked to Vote on Ballot Measure
AP Monday April 11, 2016

State attorneys are asking a judge to interpret language in the Tennessee Constitution that sets forth how votes for state ballot measures must be counted.
The Tennessean reports such a ruling could impact a separate federal challenge against the abortion measure Amendment 1.
Eight voters filed a federal suit in November 2014 shortly after passage of Amendment 1, which stripped the right to an abortion from Tennessee's Constitution.
The plaintiffs challenged the way the state counted votes. Their interpretation of the Tennessee Constitution is that people who voted in the ballot race but not for governor should not have their votes counted.
Assistant District Attorney Janet Kleinfelter argued Friday before a Williamson County judge that it's up to a state court to interpret the language of the Tennessee Constitution.

The vacant 5th district commission seat will be included on the August General Election ballot.
