NASHVILLE (AP) – A proposal to eliminate hotel allowances for some Tennessee lawmakers has been signed by the governor.

The measure would eliminate a $107-per-night hotel payment for the 33 legislators who live within 50 miles of the state Capitol.

The legislation would continue to provide a $66 daily meals allowance for all lawmakers.

It passed the House 72-15 and the Senate approved it 28-2.

The legislation was sponsored by Republican Sen. Ferrell Haile of Gallatin and Republican Rep. Rick Womick of Murfreesboro.
