TN lawmakers aim to condemn organizers of 'atrocious' UT Sex Week

UT Sex Week is coming back for its second year. The week-long student event will be held on UT's campus March 2 - 7, 2014. Last year, the student-organized event was met with some controversy. It bothered enough state leaders and university officials that the University of Tennessee pulled thousands of dollars in funding from the event.

After hearing Sex Week will return for a second year, State Representative Richard Floyd (R - Chattanooga) is sponsoring House Joint Resolution 661, which condemns the organizers of the event.

Sex Week co-founder and co-chairman, UT senior Brianna Rader, said, "When I first read it, it was condemning UT administration and now it's been amended to condemn the organizers."

The other Sex Week co-founder and co-chairman, UT Senior Jacob Clark, said, "I can't say I was shocked. I try not to be shocked with our state legislature anymore, but I'm disappointed."
