NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Gov. Bill Haslam has signed a bill to require public notices to be published on newspaper websites.

The measure maintains a requirement for public notices to be published in the print editions of newspapers. It would also create a statewide online clearinghouse for all notices.

Sponsors say the Tennessee Press Association called for the changes in the interest of enhanced transparency.

The House approved the legislation 94-1, and it passed the Senate 31-1.
