House Speaker Glen Casada denied allegations that his office promised projects for members' districts if they voted in favor of the Educational Savings Account bill.

Casada had announced plans to resign as Speaker in May.  Governor Bill Lee also called for Tennessee's General Assembly to meet and select Casada's replacement on August 23.

Casada posted a statement on his Facebook account saying, "any allegation regarding a quid quo pro from the officer of the speaker for a vote on the ESA bill, or any bill, is unequivocally false."
