State House to Hold Active Shooter Course
AP Thursday November 23, 2017

House staffers in the new Tennessee legislative office building are being required to take a class on how to survive an active shooter incident.
The Chattanooga Times Free Press reports that the mandatory course follows a decision by the speakers of the House and Senate to allow people with state-issued handgun carry permits to be armed within the Cordell Hull building.
House Speaker Beth Harwell's office says the course isn't in response to that policy change, but rather to an offer from the Tennessee Highway Patrol to hold what it calls a "sudden violence class."
A Senate spokesman says the upper chamber has no plans to follow suit.
Nearly 600,000 Tennesseans had state-issued handgun carry permits as of Nov. 1.
The state in 2016 suspended or revoked 2,400 permits.


House Members to Receive Sexual Harassment Training
AP Thursday November 23, 2017

Tennessee state representatives and their staffs are being required to attend sexual harassment training led by the YWCA.
The Tennessean reports House Speaker Beth Harwell, a Nashville Republican who is running for governor next year, has mandated the in-person sessions to replace a requirement to watch a 15-minute video.
Republican leadership in the Senate plans to stick with online courses.
Two former lawmakers faced sexual harassment allegations that contributed to their departure from the Tennessee General Assembly.
Then-Rep. Jeremy Durham was expelled from the House last year after an attorney general's investigation outlined lurid allegations of improper sexual contact with at least 22 women during his four years in office. And former Rep. Mark Lovell resigned after a woman accused him of inappropriate touching at a legislative event.
