Trump Hires Sen. Tracy
Monday November 6, 2017

President Donald Trump has appointed Republican state Sen. Jim Tracy as Tennessee rural development director for the U.S. Agriculture Department.
Tracy is an insurance agent and former college high school basketball referee from Shelbyville. Tracy has served in the state Senate since 2004. He fell 38 votes shy in his primary challenge of U.S. Rep. Scott DesJarlais in 2014.
It's unclear whether Tracy will be required to leave the Tennessee General Assembly to take on his new federal position.
Tracy this year was a major proponent of Republican Gov. Bill Haslam's transportation funding program that included a 6-cent gas tax hike to tackle a backlog of road projects.

Audit Finds Records Missing
AP Monday November 6, 2017

An audit says some records are missing to vet state tax credits for companies that locate national, regional or state headquarters in Tennessee.
According to the Chattanooga Times Free Press , the Revenue Department's Division of State Audit found three credits worth $1.6 million for three companies lacked evidence that invoices were reviewed to support approval of credits.
Revenue officials say they thought the invoices could be destroyed.
The audit says some credits didn't meet requirements to qualify as tangible personal property.
Additionally, the comptroller's audit says Revenue's audit division didn't formalize policies for tax credit approval and documentation.
Revenue officials contend their records show the credits qualified as tangible personal property and tax auditors reviewed other documents to confirm it.
Revenue management says the companies still have the destroyed records.
