UPDATE: In “Taking His Lumps,” this past week’s Politics column, it was described how Governor Phil Bredesen’s energy efficiency bill, designed to establish uniform statewide building codes for residences, had run aground in the state House of Representatives. In that chamber last week, representatives from various rural constituencies sought to exempt their areas in amendment after amendment., and action on the bill had to be postponed until this week.
