While some cities cancel, postpone Fourth of July festivities others opt to hold events with restrictions

As Independence Day approaches, many municipalities across Tennessee have modified or postponed fireworks displays and other Fourth of July events to comply with health and safety regulations due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Some municipalities also canceled events, concerned that festivals and fireworks displays would draw too large of a crowd to safely practice social distancing and risk further spread of COVID-19, especially as other nearby communities canceled or modified events.

Legislators return to wrap up session, balance budget amid revenue deficit

Tennessee lawmakers returned to Capitol Hill earlier this month, amid a wide range of devastating effects caused by the Coronavirus. The General Assembly is working to wind up the 2020 legislative session this week (June 15 - 19).
Among the most important task is passage of a revised balanced budget that reflects significant revenue reductions due to the economic impact of the virus.
