Republican Gov. Bill Haslam has named David Purkey as the new commissioner of the Tennessee Department of Safety.


The Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security is requesting over 7 and a half million dollars to supplement its budget after a planned windfall from driver's license fees failed to materialize.  A 2011 bill allowed the state to revoke the licenses of people who don’t pay criminal fines and court costs.
