Higher Ed Funding

A top economist told higher education officials they will have to find ways to cover rising costs at their institutions because the state will not have enough revenue to help them anytime soon.
Bill Fox is director of the University of Tennessee Center for Business and Economic Research. He spoke at a meeting called by the Tennessee Board of Regents to discuss funding options.
Last week, higher education officials told Gov. Haslam they'll be forced to continue raising tuition if the state does not provide adequate funding to help with costs.
Fox told the board on Wednesday that state government will have very little revenue growth for the foreseeable future and that higher education institutions will have to be creative in raising money and make better use of its current resources.

 


Racial Profiling Ban Proposed
AP Friday December 12, 2014

Legislation introduced in the Tennessee General Assembly would require all of the state's law enforcement agencies to adopt written policies to ban racial profiling.
The bill is sponsored by Republican Senator Brian Kelsey and Democratic Rep. John Deberry. Kelsey said in a release Thursday that the measure comes in response to the fatal shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., and the demonstrations that followed a grand jury decision not to indict the police officer involved.
The Legislature kicks off its annual session on Jan. 13th.
