Parents will be notified of Tennessee college students' discipline

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- State colleges and universities will have to notify parents of students who are disciplined for alcohol or drug violations.

Gov. Phil Bredesen signed the measure last week. It applies to students who are younger than 21 years old.

Sen. Roy Herron, a Dresden Democrat, has said Tennessee is the first state in the country to adopt such a law.
