NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Today, the state senate is expected to discuss a bill aimed at cracking down on Occupy Nashville Protests.
The proposal would make it a misdemeanor for protestors to camp overnight on the Capitol complex grounds.
Violators would be fined as much as $2,500, and face up to nearly a year in jail.
Protestors have camped at the plaza since early October.
The bill passed the house on Thursday.
