NASHVILLE, TN(AP) - Gov. Bill Haslam has called a news conference to introduce a new cabinet member.

The Republican governor is scheduled to make the announcement Tuesday at the state Capitol.

He told reporters earlier this month that he plans to name new commissioners for economic development and education by the first of the year, particularly before the Legislature convenes Jan. 13.

Haslam announced last month that Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bill Hagerty and Education Commissioner Kevin Huffman are leaving for the private sector.
