Haslam budget hearings continue in Knoxville

Posted: Updated:

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Governor Bill Haslam is headed to Knoxville for his last full day of budget hearings.

The Republican governor is scheduled to hear from his education, children's services and tourism departments, among others.

TennCare is the lone agency remaining awaiting its budget hearing after Tuesday. The expanded Medicaid program is set to lay out its spending priorities next week at the Capitol in Nashville.

Haslam is using the public budget hearings to help craft his proposal for the state's annual spending plan that he will present to lawmakers after they return into session in January.
