House panel flip-flops on God & liberty resolution

The House Civil Justice Subcommittee, which in early March rejected a proposal to include a declaration  that God is the source of all liberty, has changed its mind in April.

The panel on Wednesday revived the measure by Rep. Micah Van Huss, R-Jonesborough, (HJR37) and approved it on voice vote. The move came after a motion to reconsider was filed by Rep. Martin Daniel, R-Knoxville, who voted against the measure on March 1 and for it on the second try.

If the proposal is ultimately approved – a long process that would take years – this language would be added to the Tennessee Constitution:

“We recognize that our liberties do not come from governments, but from almighty God.”
