Tennessee lawmakers to consider joint resolution to authorize casino gaming


Editor’s Note: News Channel 11 originally aired this story and incorrectly named the state representative as “David” Powell. The name has been corrected to Jason Powell. The resolution was also mislabeled as House Joint Resolution 98, when the correct number is 93. This has also been corrected. News Channel 11 apologizes for the mistake.
