Tennessee State Representative - District 68

Nashville, TN – This week, Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam introduced his amendment to the fiscal year 2018-2019 budget proposal that will be considered by the 110th General Assembly.

The amendment builds on previous legislative priorities by making strategic and thoughtful investments across state government.  Because of the conservative fiscal choices lawmakers have made over the last several years, Tennessee currently ranks as the lowest taxed and lowest debt state in the nation.

In early March, Governor Haslam appointed a School Safety Working Group to review school safety in Tennessee and provide recommendations to enhance the security of school children.

Tennessee Department of Transportation reminds Tennesseans “It’s Pothole Season”

 

TDOT working to Repair Damaged Areas

Tennessee Department of Transportation - TDOTNashville, TN – Winter weather extremes lead to an increase in potholes on state highways and bridges.  Potholes form when moisture seeps into cracks in the pavement, then freezes and thaws causing the cracks to expand.  The constant pounding of traffic loosens the pavement which causes it to crumble, creating potholes.

Severe swings in temperature followed by periods of rain are the perfect conditions for widespread potholes to form.

AAA finds two-thirds of American motorists are concerned about potholes

AAA cautions drivers to remain alert to avoid pothole damage and urges state and local governments to fully fund and prioritize road maintenance to reduce vehicle damage, repair costs and driver frustration.

State Farm® reminds drivers that Potholes can be Costly

 

Don’t Get Swallowed Up By the Road

State FarmMurfreesboro, TN – Winter brings a number of driving hazards, but one of the most dreaded is the pothole.

Potholes, also called chuckholes and road craters, can occur in any region or climate, but at this time of year, they’re especially prominent in areas known for ice, snow and below-freezing temperatures.
