McCormick Won't Seek 4th Term
AP Wednesday September 21, 2016

Gerald McCormick, the fiery majority leader of the Tennessee House, says he won't seek another term as the chamber's No. 2 Republican.
The Chattanooga Times Free Press reports that McCormick has informed his colleagues of his decision not to stand for majority leader again following the November elections.
McCormick said he is "incredibly proud" of his time as majority leader and that he will continue to serve the GOP caucus in whatever way his colleagues see fit.
The announcement comes just a little over a month after the Chattanooga Republican first told colleagues he planned to seek a fourth term as majority leader after Republican Rep. Jimmy Matlock of Lenoir City said he would challenge House Speaker Beth Harwell of Nashville for the top position in the House.


Education Funding Discussed
AP Wednesday September 21, 2016

Gov. Bill Haslam says that Tennessee historically has not spent enough on education, but officials are working to change that.
The Commercial Appeal reports Haslam spoke to Memphis educators and business leaders Monday night about the need for careful allocation of resources.
He says Tennessee is one of the top 10 states now in increased funding toward education.
Several school districts in Tennessee, including Shelby County Schools, are suing the state for what local officials have called a dramatic underfunding of kindergarten-through-12th-grade education. Haslam's budget this year included over $200 million of extra funding.
Haslam also outlined the problems that come with so few Tennessee students being ready for college and also criticized presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump for not talking more about education.


Price Gouging Investigated
WTVF Tuesday September 20, 2016

The Tennessee Department of Commerce and Insurance has received and began investigating hundreds of price gouging complaints from the weekend.
The department's Consumer Affairs received nearly 600 complaints via online forms or voicemails in response to the lack of fuel.
Typically, the state would get 5,000 total complaints every year.
The majority of the complaints were from the Nashville metro area with reports of gas prices ranging from $3 per gallon to as high as $9.99 per gallon.
Under Tennessee law, it is unlawful to grossly charge essential goods or services in a time of emergency.
There are so many complaints the Consumer Affairs staff is still logging the complaints. State officials say they will go through each complaint with a legal team to determine the validity of the complaint.
The Attorney General will review and investigate the complaint. If there is a violation, the business could face an injunction or a $1,000 fine.

Jay Walker Tuesday September 20, 2016

The full Warren County Commission Monday night unanimously passed a resolution to pay half the cost of reopening the Driver Testing Center on Vervilla Road. The county will contribute $2,000 of the $4,000 cost per month until the end of the fiscal year, which is June 30th, 2017. The City of McMinnville has already committed to paying the remaining $2,000.
In other business, commissioners approved a resolution to convey land on Vo-Tech Drive to Motlow College, approved the appointment of Preston Denny as EMS Director, re-appointed Robert Collier and Stevie Glenn to the Planning Commission, and appointed Commissioners Tommy Savage, Linda Jones, David Ray and Terry Bell to the Financial Management Committee.
You can hear Monday night's meeting in its entirety Tuesday at 10am and 5pm on 960 WBMC.
