Sherrell Opposed Improve Act
Jay Walker Saturday April 29, 2017

43rd District State Rep. Paul Sherrell of Sparta said he did not vote for Governor Haslam's Improve Act, which will raise the gasoline tax in Tennessee for pay for road and bridge projects. The governor's proposal passed this week and the governor has already signed the bill.
Rep. Sherrell said he voted for an alternative bill, known as the Hawk Bill. Under that bill, 90 percent of revenue generated by vehicle sales would have gone to transportation funding. 64 percent would have been allotted to the Highway Fund, generating an estimated $215 million. 24 percent would have gone to counties, generating an estimated $81 million. And 12 percent would have gone to municipalities, generating an estimated $40 million.
The Hawk Bill would have included no new taxes.

Two teachers have been suspended as a result of an investigation into allegations of drug involvement at Hickory Creek School.
Jordan Underhill and Lisa Miller have reportedly been suspended indefinitely as the Warren County Sheriff's Department investigation is ongoing.
Last week fifth-grade teacher Jason Moore was arrested after allegedly purchasing $225 worth of percocet from an undercover operative in the Hickory Creek School parking lot. The suspension of Underhill and Miller is in connection with last week's incident involving Moore, although neither has been charged.
The investigation stems from complaints from parents regarding the sale of drugs on school property.
