TN Politics: Gov. Lee Gets Tough(er) While People Flout Warnings
Political analyst Otis Sanford discusses the week in Tennessee politics for March 29-April 4, 2020.
On Thursday, Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee issued a Stay-at-Home order for the state of Tennessee, giving local governments greater authority to close down non-essential businesses. In Memphis, Mayor Jim Strickland has been a step ahead of the state out of necessity. The metropolitan area is experiencing a rising number of COVID-19 cases. While most people are abiding by edicts to shelter-in-place, there is some indication that people are not taking the warnings seriously. As political analyst Otis Sanford tells us, stricter measures are likely soon to come.
