The 107th General Assembly will convene on Tuesday, January 11, 2011 at noon.
“When the Legislature initially convenes, the first order of business is the swearing in of the members-elect. The two bodies meet in their respective chambers and the members take an oath of office swearing to support the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of Tennessee and to perform their official duties impartially without favor or prejudice and to always to protect the rights of the people.”

Will Mayor Linda Elam abide by the City Charter (which she has previously taken an oath to uphold) and resign prior to being sworn in as a member of the legislature?
