State of the State Address
WSMV Tuesday February 2, 2016

Gov. Bill Haslam delivered his biggest speech of the year on Monday night.
During his sixth State of the State address, Haslam laid out his vision for the future of Tennessee and outlined his budget for this fiscal year to lawmakers.
The governor explained what the state will do with a huge surplus of money for state departments.
Haslam promised a 4 percent pay increase for most public school teachers, and a 2.5 to 4 percent pay raise for about 28,000 state employees.
The governor said education is key to keeping overall costs down.
Haslam also praised the Drive to 55 plan, an effort to make certain 55 percent of the population has a degree by 2025. Currently, about 37 percent has one.
Other priorities include a plan to pay back gas tax money that was taken away from road projects to cover general spending years ago. That amounts to roughly $261 million.
Although there is more money, Haslam told state departments to be prepared for funding cuts. He said he wants to make the government more efficient and protect Tennessee from a downturn later on.

 


Gas Prices
Tuesday February 2, 2016

Gas prices continue falling at a rate of a half cent a day, despite increases in the price of oil last week. Crude prices rose more than $3 last week, while the national average dropped 3 cents. Pump prices have fallen 25 out of the past 30 days. The current average price for a gallon of regular unleaded is $1.80 nationwide, and $1.61 in Tennessee.
"Motorists enjoyed the lowest gas prices for the month of January since 2009, largely due to crude oil supply outpacing demand," said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA - The Auto Club Group. "Retail averages should remain relatively low this year, barring any disruptions in supply. However, prices will likely begin to rise in February."
Average gas prices for the entire month of January were $1.91 nationwide, and $1.69 in Tennessee.
