Residency requirements

The Tennessee legislature passed a bill (waiting the governor’s signature) to require three years of residency in the state and in the district any candidate for office looks to represent. I have not dived into the details, but barring an elected official from representing a changed district based on the census and district redrawing, I do not see a problem with this legislation. A Trump-backed candidate does and has out-of-state money to back her.

Please educate me on this. It seems like anti-carpetbagger legislation where it’s MAGA folk instead of Yankees.
