Update on legislative session in Tennessee

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Governor Bill Haslam's proposal to create a school voucher program in Tennessee has failed again.

The measure was withdrawn from the House Finance Committee Tuesday morning because it didn't have the votes to pass, especially in the House.

It's the second year Governor Haslam has not been able to get the legislation passed.

Meanwhile, anti-meth legislation has passed in the Senate.

The bill would limit how much cold medicine people can buy without a prescription.

Under the plan, the cap is 4.8 grams a month and just over 14 grams per year.

The House plan sets the monthly cap at 5.8 grams and has an annual limit of nearly 29 grams.

Lawmakers must agree on a compromise before it would go to the Governor's desk.
