DMC Corp v. Shriver , 224 Tenn. 664 (1970)

DMC Corp v. Shriver


The Tennessee Supreme Court held that a proper bill has both a title and text. The text of the anti-pyramid law was added after the bill had been read twice in the senate, but before final passage. However, the state statutes required both a title and text to be defined as a bill. Therefore, the bill was improperly passed and the law is invalid.
