NASHVILLE, TN (AP) - Gov. Bill Haslam is planning to announce what is being touted as a "significant" economic development deal in Nashville.
The governor is scheduled to be joined by Economic and Community Development Commissioner Randy Boyd and Nashville Mayor Karl Dean for the ceremony at the state Capitol on Thursday morning.
In previous economic development announcements in the Capitol's Old Supreme Court Chamber, Haslam announced a new $160 million supplier park at Nissan's Tennessee assembly plant in Smyrna and Italian gun maker Beretta's decision to build a manufacturing and research facility in the Nashville suburb of Gallatin.
