Defiance of the Copeland Cap sign now

We the undersigned request the legislature of the state of Tennessee to:

1. Hold accountable all persons who have allowed the state to exceed its budget as prevented in the Copeland Cap as follows:
In no year shall the rate of growth of appropriations from state tax revenues exceed the estimated rate of growth of the state's economy as determined by law. No appropriation in excess of this limitation shall be made unless the General Assembly shall, by law containing no other subject matter, set forth the dollar amount and the rate by which the limit will be exceeded. (Article 2 Section 24)

2. To acknowledge that we, the taxpayers of Tennessee have come to realize that we have been the mark of one of the biggest scams in state history, and

3. Prior to this state being named as a litigant in a lawsuit and placed in the situation of more costs being sent to the citizens, demand:

Immediate withdrawal of the unconstitutional budget practices that this reckless administration and legislature has caused by ignoring the Constitution of the State of Tennessee.
