Following up on this report, I've discovered the bill in question and the story is a little more interesting than presented in the story.

The bill doesn't actually propose capping standard state act comp benefits, instead it proposes minimum benefits for a proposed opt-out provision in TN workers' comp. This is very similar to what has been enacted in Oklahoma and it's being lobbied for by a national organization.

The bill was proposed earlier this year and has been put on the calendar for the 2016 legislative session.
