In Memphis, Gibbons slaps Ramsey for trying to cut funding for the Haywood County industrial site, and Haslam joins the fun:
"We took money out of the savings account ... out of the rainy day fund and then we took money that came from the stimulus plan. ... Neither of those is going to be around in two years when one of us takes office," Haslam said. "We're not going to have a state income tax in Tennessee. ... That's not going to happen. We're not going to raise the sales tax. ... So you're literally in a position where you're going to have to fundamentally restructure state government."
Rep. Frank Niceley lobbied for rail-truck facility site that could raise his property values. ... Sen. Paul Stanley qualifies for $8,000 a year from the state pension. ... Willie Herenton finally leaves office: "I'm history as mayor." ... Union says VW not hiring locally. ... Metro Council holds public forum on guns in parks. ... Frist releases first report on Tennessee schools.
