we prevented a total of 6 very bad bills this year in TN.  held off for the 
following year means that no one gets burned.  some may get resurrected, but not 
all.

TN's bill(s) were not killed.  We have a two year legislature, so unless a bill 
comes up for a vote and is voted down, it is automatically still alive the 
following year.  It did not come to a vote this year.
