House subcommittee advances bill stripping $100K from UT diversity operations

A bill that would strip the University of Tennessee of $100,000 a year in state funding for certain diversity and inclusion operations began advancing in a House subcommittee Tuesday — but on a separate track than a similar effort underway in the state Senate. ...

The amendment would also prohibit UT from using any state funds "to promote the use of gender-neutral pronouns, Sex Week or to promote or demote a religious holiday." The committee approved the amendment and moments later, the bill, on an unrecorded group voice vote.  KnoxvilleNews Sentinel
