Anti-tax hike referendum legal battle over: Tennessee Supreme Court declines appeal

The legal battle over a 2020 anti-tax hike referendum effort is over. The Tennessee Supreme Court on Thursday declined to hear the Davidson County Election Commission's appeal challenging Metro's handling of a petition-driven referendum effort to strike down the city's 34% property tax increase.

Petition group 4 Good Government first attempted to trigger a referendum election in 2020, aiming to curb Metro government's power to increase property taxes and change how Nashville handles public official recalls, sports team deals and more. A trial court judge struck down that effort.

The group launched another referendum push in 2021, which was also struck down by a trial court judge later that year.
