NASHVILLE (AP) - Legislation that would move up the qualifying deadline for the presidential primary is headed now to the governor.

The measure, sponsored by House Majority Leader Gary Odom, a Nashville Democrat, unanimously passed the House on Monday. It unanimously passed the Senate earlier this month.

The measure would move the qualifying deadline from the second Thursday in December to the first Thursday in November.

Gov. Phil Bredesen could not be reached for comment about whether he will sign the bill.
