Tennessean’s Medical Freedom Legislation Undergoes Evaluation By Lee

The Tennessee Conservative [By Paula Gomes] –

In a Facebook post early Saturday morning, Governor Lee had this to say as the third extraordinary session came to a close, “I commend members of the General Assembly for working to address the Biden Administration’s overreach into our state, our workforce, and our schools. We are evaluating each piece of legislation to ensure we push back on harmful federal policies and do right by Tennesseans.”

The new legislation does not become law immediately. The Governor has ten days (not counting Sundays) after a bill is presented to him to either approve or veto. If he chooses not to act on the bill, it will become law at the end of the ten days without his signature. With Lee’s Mask Opt-Out expiring on Friday, signing the bill before then would mean not having to extend his Executive Order.

So far, Lee has remained non-committal, stating that he is reviewing the legislation.


Whether Lee signs the bill into law or not, Tennesseans are far from happy with the outcome of the special session.

Missie Bertram said, “This bill does nothing to protect Tennessee from [the] federal government. It is also set to expire in 2023 losing the little protection we did have. Lee has done nothing except give the illusion of doing the right thing while bending over to big government and corporations.”

Cheryl Brehm said, “Thank you for your help, Gov Lee. But please listen carefully, you can’t play both sides – partial freedom isn’t actually freedom at all. In the end your compromises will cause both sides to resent you, and unfortunately there will be sad consequences for you and for us as well…”

Robin Habeger said, “There is a HUGE federal exemption clause in the bill, so… Big government and big money wins… We the people lose. Sad day here in Tennessee.”

    You can’t play both sides against the middle. He’s spent millions of our money on the vaccine push, is in favored status with the Chinese government, has ‘ruled’ us for 18 months by executive order ( I blame the legislature for not curbing that), approved the shielding approach which is essentially cov’d internment camps, gave almost a billion to Ford which is tied to George Soros, took no action against business and industry discriminating amongst masked or unmasked, vax’ed and unvax’d, coercing people to be shot up it lose their jobs. He’s ‘woke’ , not awakened and I pray he doesn’t have a second term as the only losers will be Tennesseans.

    A true RINO, remember that the next time. The people of Tennessee need to wake up and elect a real conservative Republicans to any office. Most of the legislators let us “we the people” down with this nonsense of a special session. They didn’t have to rush this through, they could have taken their time. And given the citizens of Tennessee real protections against these unconstitutional mandates. All I can say is, what a joke!
    GOD bless America

    Governor Lee needs to do the right thing by the people of Tennessee and leave OUR medical choices about what we put on/in our bodies to US!!!! Anything less is tyranny and we will not EVER accept that!!! If Lee fails us now he is Fired next year!! I hear John Gentry is a true conservative, not a RINO like Lee so let’s sit tight for a few days and see what he does. We can take him out before next year if we so choose but will need a large majority to do so. Oh, one final word: Boycott Ford!!!
