Following the passage of the Teague-Cranston Act, on February 14, 1974 Senator Nave of the Tennessee General Assembly called for consideration of state legislation to establish a medical school at East Tennessee State University. Eventually passing both the Tennessee House and Senate, the bill was vetoed by Governor Winfield Dunn of Memphis. Motions to override the veto were made in both chambers and were successful. Senate Bill no.1549 became law on March 6, 1974.
