The gun law will go into effect despite questions about what it means for employment law in Tennessee. The measure allows workers to store guns in cars while parked in employers’ lots.
Other measures taking effect include a law that allows school districts to let people with police training be armed in schools and one that would require incoming students at public higher education institutions to show proof they’ve had meningitis shots.
Also taking effect is a reduction in the state sales tax on food, moving it from 5.25 percent down to 5 percent.
Another measure will reform Tennessee’s wholesale beer tax. Brewers will now be taxed by the volume produced instead of the price of their products.
