Governor Bill Lee’s controversial “school voucher” program suffered another blow Tuesday when the Tennessee Court of Appeals upheld a lower court’s decision that the Education Savings Account Act is unconstitutional.

The ESA program, also known as “school vouchers," would give more than $7,000 in state money to qualifying parents in Shelby and Davidson counties to help send students to private schools.
...
Both counties sued over the program, saying it violated “Home Rule” protections because it only applies to the two counties.

A Trump-appointed Nashville federal judge on Tuesday prevented a new law requiring abortion providers to offer medically questionable information to women seeking abortions from going into effect.
...
“violates the First Amendment by requiring abortion providers to convey a mandated message that is misleading.”

We have a Trumpian government in Tennessee. Would someone please stop the clownish TN legislature from wasting time and money.
