Judd Matheny sponsored the 2011 bill, "Material Support to Designated Entities Act of 2011," which originally specifically targeted people who practice Sharia Law, the foundation of Islamic Code. It been stripped of any language about religion and instead widening the reach of the bill to anyone exhibiting potentially terrorist-like tendencies.
It aims to fight “homegrown terrorism,” whether the state finds that threat in gangs, cults, religious groups or individuals, according to lawmakers carrying the bill.
“I would just, please, like to implore the Muslim community, this is not against you,” said Matheny. “This is not a witch hunt. This is nothing but to protect ourselves where the federal government can’t or won’t.”
Members of the House Judiciary Committee approved the bill 12-4 while the measure won a 6-3 favorable vote in the Senate Judiciary Committee. From there, both measures had to advance to the houses’ Finance, Ways and Means committees.
Rep. Mike Stewart said the bill doesn’t give enough of a recourse for people falsely accused of being or helping terrorists.
“It’s un-American as far as I’m concerned,” said Stewart. “What we’re saying here is that somebody in Tennessee, a regular person, can be declared a terrorist, and they have no right to a trial of their peers to clear their good name. That’s just completely the opposite of what we should be doing in this country.”
