NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The Senate has voted to restore Tipton County to the upper chamber's redistricting plan.
The West Tennessee county that is in Senate Majority Leader Mark Norris' redrawn district, had been inadvertently omitted by the upper chamber when it passed its plan last week.
The Senate voted 22-10 on Thursday to approve a fix made earlier in the House. All votes against the measure came from Democrats.
Democrats have blamed what they call the overly hasty adoption of the GOP redistricting plan for causing the error.
The plan now heads for the signature of Republican Gov. Bill Haslam, who is expected to sign it into law.
