Print | Front Page | Email this story

NASHVILLE (AP) - The state is seeking comment from the public on proposed rules regarding the use of the War Memorial Plaza across from the state Capitol.

The Department of General Services held a hearing on Monday to discuss the rules. The hearing follows the signing of a new law by Gov. Bill Haslam that aims to keep Occupy Nashville protesters from staying overnight on the plaza.

The law prohibits camping on state property that is not specifically designated for it.

Thad Watkins is general counsel for the General Services Department. He said all written and verbal comments will be reviewed before the rules are adopted. He said they will then be reviewed and approved by the state attorney general and sent to the secretary of state's office where they will be on file for at least 90 days before taking effect.
