Governor Bill Haslam on Monday praised passage of the IMPROVE Act, a key piece of his NextTennessee legislative plan. He said it “gives the largest tax cut in Tennessee history and makes the state more competitive in recruiting manufacturing jobs while delivering a safe, reliable and debt-free transportation network for the next generation of Tennesseans.”
Governor Haslam said, “The IMPROVE Act is a conservative plan that directly addresses how we fund our roads and bridges for the first time in 30 years.
