A special session of the legislature to kill Nashville's Santuary cilty bill was afoot, should bill have advanced, says Nashville Scene.

The Nashville Scene reports what most of us who have been paying attention already knew, and that is that the State of Tennessee as represented by the State legislature would have been very displeased if Nashville would have passed the sanctuary city bill. The Scene article says the Metro attorney's legal opinion hurt the bill and the opposition of candidates for governor and opposition from news and opinion outlets hurt the bills chances and the mayor's opposition hurt the bill. However, the article says opposition from the State was a primary negative factor. What we learn from the Scene piece is that a movement was afoot in the capitol to call a special session of the legislature for the purpose of killing the Metro effort.
