NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Tennessee senators say they don't want to participate in a boundary commission proposed by Georgia legislators to consider moving the states' border.
Members of the Senate State and Local Government Committee voted unanimously Tuesday for a resolution that formally rejects any participation in such a commission. The measure unanimously passed the House earlier this month.
Both chambers of the GOP-controlled Georgia Legislature last month passed a resolution that calls on their governor to establish a commission to try to rectify a 19th century survey that mistakenly placed Georgia's northern line just short of the Tennessee River.
Tennessee Gov. Phil Bredesen has said he doesn't intend to change Tennessee's border.
