Tenn. House votes down Senate's anti-meth bill

The Tennessee House has voted not go along with the Senate version of Governor Bill Haslam's proposal to crack down on meth production.

The bill would set tighter annual limits on the amount of cold and allergy medicines used to make meth that can be bought without a prescription.

The House version would set an annual limit of 28.8 grams, or a five-month supply, without a prescription. The Senate bill would set the limit at half that amount.

The lower chamber voted 80-10 to reject the Senate version, meaning the legislation is likely headed for a conference committee to try to work out the differences.
