FILE - In this Monday, Feb. 14, 2011 picture, Sen. Bill Ketron, R-Murfreesboro, speaks outside the Senate chamber in Nashville, Tenn. about his bill to require photo identification to vote. Tennessee Republican leaders say they're willing to talk with concerned Muslims about legislation that would make it a felony to follow some versions of the Islamic code known as Shariah, even though activists say their requests for discussion have gone unheard. Ketron said the proposal exempts the peaceful practice of Islam, but seeks to condemn those "who take Shariah law to the other extreme" and gives state and local law enforcement officials "a powerful counterterrorism tool."
