Legislation ending Tennessee's 59-year-old "forced annexation" law is heading for Governor Bill Haslam's desk after overwhelmingly passing the House. Under the legislation, Tennessee towns and cities could no longer annex property simply by passing an ordinance. Instead, the only way cities would be able to annex is through petition brought by property owners wanting to come in or if a majority of voters cast ballots to do so in a public referendum. The bill exempts property owners, such a business developers, who want to come into a city for services they can't get in unincorporated areas.
