Tennessee Republicans announce immigration task force

The Chattanoogan reports that the House Republican Caucus is continuing its emphasis on immigration-related policies in Tennessee and has formed a "task force" to study those issues.

"The House Republican Caucus announced today the formation of a task force to study immigration and citizenship policies in Tennessee."

"The task force will be chaired by Rep. Beth Harwell (R-Nashville). Additional members of the task force will be announced at a later date."

"Caucus Chairman Charles Sargent (R-Franklin), said, 'Although immigration is largely a federal issue, states have much authority regarding a number of state-related services such as driving privileges. With this task force, we will be looking at proactive measures taken by other states on a number of immigration issues.'"

"Meetings will be scheduled throughout the summer and fall months in preparation for presenting comprehensive proposals to the legislature during the second half of the 104th General Assembly."
