A ‘Travel Alert’ is currently in effect for all of Europe, outlining the potential risks; however, the State Department has not gone so far as to urge travelers to cancel vacations by issuing a ‘Travel Warning’.
“AAA travel agents have received numerous calls from concerned travelers, but very few have cancelled their vacations to Europe,” said Don Lindsey, Public Affairs Director, AAA Tennessee. “While AAA urges all travelers to stay informed and increase their awareness when traveling abroad, the decision to vacation in Europe is a very personal decision that is solely up to the individual traveler.”
Nashville, TN – The members of the Tennessee Black Caucus of State legislators are joining with the Mayors of Memphis, Knoxville and Chattanooga in opposition to HB0779/SB0749. The bill would allow areas that have been annexed into those cities to vote on de-annexing or withdrawing from the city that annexed them.
The mayors say the bill could potentially be disastrous for the cities resulting in major population loss and torpedoing efforts to attract new businesses.
Caucus Chair Brenda Gilmore said that the majority of the Caucus represents areas that would be adversely affected by the bill and added, “The economic issues that these cities could be facing because of this legislation could be catastrophic. The Black Caucus cannot stand idly by while these cities and some of the majority-minority communities around them face the possibility of extreme economic hardship.” «Read the rest of this article»
