TWRA Hasn't Updated Endangered Species List
AP Wednesday September 13, 2017

An audit has found that the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency has not updated the state's endangered species list in 16 years, even though it is required to do so every two years.
Comptroller Justin Wilson's office said in the audit released Tuesday that the state is also running afoul of an agreement with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to annually submit additions and deletions from the list of threatened species.
The audit finds that the failure to update the list since 2000 could put more species at risk of becoming extinct and could cause Tennessee to lose federal grants.
The head of the state wildlife agency's biodiversity division was unaware of the reporting requirement until 2013, and officials are in the process of creating a new endangered species list.

 


Rep. Matheny's Campaign Pays for Ammo
AP Wednesday September 13, 2017

A Republican congressional candidate in Tennessee spent campaign funds to cover the cost of 2,000 rounds of machine gun ammunition from his personal stockpile.
The Tennessean reports state Rep. Judd Matheny of Tullahoma provided belted ammunition for large tripod-mounted weapons fired at an April shooting event.
Matheny is running for the 6th Congressional District seat being vacated by Rep. Diane Black, who is vying for the Republican gubernatorial nomination.
Matheny says the event attended by other state lawmakers and Republican U.S. Rep. Scott DesJarlais used another $12,000 in ammunition donated by outside groups.
The lawmaker says the use of $1,600 in campaign money from his state account for bullets is justified because it was a "high value" event for constituents.
Matheny represents the 47th district, which includes Coffee and a portion of Warren County.
