KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A Republican lawmaker says he's dropping a legislative fight over the student run Sex Week at the state's flagship public university.
Sen. Stacey Campfield of Knoxville and other lawmakers took issue with the use of student fees for the weeklong program about sex.
Earlier this week, the Senate passed a resolution decrying what it called the "radical agenda" of Sex Week.
Campfield proposed legislation to put new restrictions on UT student fees. But the Knoxville News Sentinel reports he's withdrawn those measures because of steps UT officials have pledged to take action voluntarily.
UT's president says in a letter to administrators and trustees that the school will immediately begin to address concerns in the resolution.
