CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. — A local lawmaker is calling for House Speaker Glen Casada to step down and that could come with a price.

Money for a Special Session would come from the regular operating budget, costing taxpayers thousands of dollars.

On Tuesday, Representative Mike Carter of Ooltewah announced he's putting together a petition that would remove the House Speaker.

That's after text messages revealed Casada and his former Chief of Staff exchanged sexually explicit and racist messages.

To remove him from office, this year, at least 66 lawmakers must sign Carter's petition and head back to Nashville.

It takes $47,916 to make one day of lawmaking in the Tennessee legislature possible, according to Tennessee's Office of Legislative Administration.

"Out of $36 billion dollar budget, i think 30 or 40 thousand dollars will not be noticed."

In a statement, Casada says he will return to the Capitol June 3rd and determine the best date to resign as speaker.

However, Representative Carter says that process should begin sooner.
