Common Core Bill Filed
AP Tuesday November 18, 2014

Two Republican state senators have filed legislation to repeal the state's Common Core standards.
The measure would set up a so-called Tennessee Standards Commission that would recommend to the State Board of Education standards to be used in the state's K-12 public schools.
Senate Education Committee Chairwoman Dolores Gresham and Senate Government Operations Committee Chairman Mike Bell say the move is designed to ensure Tennessee students continue to improve by applying the highest standards, while exerting state control over education.
Several attempts to repeal the standards failed during the last legislative session. Lawmakers did manage to delay the testing component of the standards.

 


Gas Prices
Tuesday November 18, 2014

Motorists continue to enjoy the lowest gas prices in four years. The national average price for a gallon of regular unleaded dropped 52 consecutive days Sunday, falling 45 cents since September 26th.
AAA spokesman Mark Jenkins said gas prices are plunging in-line with the falling price of oil, declining demand, and pumps selling winter-blend fuel which is cheaper to produce. Jenkins said gas prices should only get cheaper through the rest of the year.
The national average price for a gallon of regular is $2.89, which is 4 cents less than last week. Tennessee's average of $2.67 is 3 cents cheaper than last week, 28 cents cheaper than a month ago, and 39 cents cheaper than this time last year.

The McMinnville Board of Mayor and Aldermen will meet Tuesday night in what will be the final meeting for three aldermen. Billy Wood, Rick Barnes and Ken Smith will be leaving the board to make way for the newly elected aldermen.
The board will consider resolutions to accept a bid for resurfacing of streets, a bid for the HVAC system at the Park Theater, and a bid for electrical and plumbing at the Park Theater.
The newly elected aldermen will not be sworn in Tuesday because the election has not yet been certified.
Tuesday night's meeting starts at 7pm at City Hall.

 


Abortion Proposal
AP Monday November 17, 2014

A bill has been introduced to the Tennessee State House to require an ultrasound performed prior to an abortion.
The bill represents the first measure after voters passed Constitutional Amendment 1, giving lawmakers the power to regulate and restrict abortions.
The bill requires the pregnant woman to get an ultrasound between 24 and 72 hours before an abortion, unless the abortion is part of a medical emergency.
