NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Mike Osborne)  --   Gov. Bill Lee on Thursday released his full list of legislative priorities for the current session of the Tennessee General Assembly.

The Republican governor is asking lawmakers to consider college assistance for children aging out of Tennessee’s foster care system.

Lee also wants to essentially eliminate the state’s gun licensing regulations. His legislation would allow residents to openly carry a firearm virtually anywhere, anytime.

Gov. Lee has a special interest in prison reform. He’s asking for more money for various diversion programs that keep felons out of prison.
