Gov. Haslam continued his campaign to drum up support for funding the state’s $6 billion of backlogged road projects. Haslam spoke at a conference of the Transportation Coalition of Tennessee in Murfreesboro on Tuesday and urged state and local government officials to explain to their communities the need to find a long term solution that will finance these road projects. The Governor has suggested a gas tax increase but has met with strong opposition.
Governor Haslam is urging high school seniors to apply for the Tennessee Promise Program before the November 2 deadline. So far, over 15,000 students in the class of 2015 are taking advantage of the governor's free tuition program this fall. The deadline for the class of 2016 is November 2. In addition to the application, students need to file a federal student aid form, go to two mandatory meetings and complete 8 hours of community service. That’s a lot to fulfill in less than a month, but it is still possible. For more information go to tnpromise.gov.
