Sen. Doug Jackson, D-Dickson, has introduced legislation that would require double occupancy in every Tennessee Highway Patrol vehicle on the road between sundown and sunrise. The measure was inspired by the Jan. 6 shooting death of 24-year-old Trooper Calvin Jenks, he said.
A complementary bill has been filed by in the state House by Rep. David Shepard, D-Dickson.
