Governor Haslam says he's not planning any changes for Tennessee Higher Ed.
Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam says he plans no major changes to the state's public higher education system next legislative session. Haslam also says he has yet to decide if he will push for a bill to create a school vouchers program in Tennessee.
A law Haslam signed earlier this year gave him direct control over the appointment of the Tennessee Higher Education Commission. The governor says while he may propose some tweaks to lottery scholarships, he’ll stay away from legislation on the state’s colleges and universities’ governance. Haslam says he is still evaluating recommendations on school vouchers.
