Tennessee Legislative Petitions

GO TO INDEX

Legislative petitions are original documents that were submitted to the Tennessee General Assembly, requesting that legislative action be taken on matters of concerns to individuals, municipal governments or county governments. If the law was passed, the text of the law was published in the series Acts of Tennessee.

While many petitions were submitted, not all resulted in a legislative act. Legislative acts were also passed without there being a petition submitted. A majority of the original petitions were returned to the petitioner, although the Tennessee General Assembly did retain many of the documents.
