The Tennessean, June 3, 2010

A bill seeking to allow Tennesseans to opt out of the new federal healthcare law has been defeated in the state House. The measure sponsored by Republican Rep. Mike Bell of Riceville was defeated by a single vote in the House Budget Subcommittee. State Attorney General Bob Cooper has questioned the constitutionality of Bell's measure on the basis that it could be pre-empted by federal law, The Tennessean reports.
