NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Supporters of Gov. Bill Haslam's proposal to extend health coverage to 280,000 low-income Tennesseans are calling on House Speaker Beth Harwell to bring the measure to a full vote on the House floor.

About 30 people rallied outside the Nashville Republican's office on Tuesday singing songs and holding signs in favor of the proposal that failed during a special session in February and again in a Senate Committee last month during the regular session.

Harwell's spokeswoman didn't immediately return an email to The Associated Press seeking comment.

But House Republican Caucus Chairman Glen Casada of Franklin said he doesn't see the measure coming to the floor.

Lawmakers are hoping to adjourn for the year by the end of next week.
