NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Democratic lawmakers who want to use surplus state revenues to halt tuition increases and make deeper cuts to the sales tax on groceries called on Republican Gov.

The legislators said at a news conference that they'd like the session to be in August, possibly before students return to school.
