NASHVILLE (AP) – A measure that would amend the Tennessee Constitution to ban an income tax is headed for a full Senate vote.

The proposal sponsored by Republican Sen. Brian Kelsey of Germantown passed the Senate Finance Committee 9-1 on Tuesday and is waiting to be scheduled for a vote on the Senate floor.

The proposal, which would go on the ballot in 2014, was amended earlier in the legislative process to require notification also be published in newspapers and not just on the Secretary of State and General Assembly websites.

Some members noted that voters, such as senior citizens, might be disenfranchised because they don't have access to computers.
