NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - State lawmakers are scheduled to convene the 110th Tennessee General Assembly on Jan. 10.

The three-day organizational session will kick off with the formal elections for speaker in both chambers, though heavy Republican majorities in both the Senate and House mean that little drama is expected for the Republican nominees, Sen. Randy McNally of Oak Ridge and Rep. Beth Harwell of Nashville.

The next day the two chambers are scheduled to meet in join session to elect the comptroller, treasurer and secretary of state. And on the last day of the organizational session lawmakers are to participate in ethics training.

Once those tasks are complete lawmakers plant to take a recess until the end of the month before returning to hear Gov. Bill Haslam’s annual state of the state address.
