Tennessee’s “Monkey Bill”–still no news

Tennessee’s so-called “Monkey Bill”, House Bill 368, which allows teachers to discuss the non-existent “scientific controversies” over evolution and global warming, has still not been vetoed or signed into law by Governor Bill Haslam.  He has been bombarded with petitions, editorials, and letters to veto the bill.  Haslam has indicated, in the past, that teaching requirements should be set by the Board of Education and not the legislature.  

Well, stay tuned.  Haslam says he will make a decision tomorrow.
