Rep. Bill Sanderson resigns from legislature, citing family and business demands

A West Tennessee Republican lawmaker stepped down from statehouse Wednesday, citing a family matter and demands of his business.

Rep. Bill Sanderson, R-Kenton, confirmed Tuesday night that he planned to resign from his legislative seat.

His resignation became effective Wednesday at noon.

Sanderson, who owns White Squirrel Winery in Kenton, said his business has increased significantly in recent years and he's been unable to adequately maintain it while being a part-time lawmaker.
