Lawmakers Want Agencies to allow Photos of Records
AP Friday September 22, 2017

Tennessee lawmakers are asking three state agencies to ensure that their policies allow residents to take cell phone photos of public records.
The Tennessean reports that Joint Government Operations Committee members questioned the Office of the Comptroller of the Treasury, the Department of Transportation and the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency about their policies Wednesday.
Stephanie Maxwell told lawmakers she thought comptroller's office policy did allow for photos of records. But Sen. Mike Bell said the way the policy is written doesn't allow it. Bell requested a policy change.
Rep. Jeremy Faison said comptroller chief of staff Jason Mumpower has agreed the rule doesn't intend to ban residents from using cell phone cameras.
Wildlife and transportation agency representatives said they plan to eliminate uncertainty about taking cell phone photos of documents.

The 2017 deer archery-only hunting season opens statewide in Tennessee on Saturday, Sept. 23. The archery season dates in all five of the state's deer hunting units are the same. The dates are Sept. 23-Oct. 27 and Oct. 30-Nov. 3.
The TWRA makes the recommendation that all archery hunters obtain a 2017-18 Tennessee Hunting and Trapping Guide. The guide lists the counties and bag limits for each of the different deer management units. The guides are available where hunting and fishing licenses are sold and on the TWRA website, www.tnwildlife.org.
Hunters are reminded that they must possess the appropriate licenses and permits. Any hunter born on or after Jan. 1, 1969 is required to carry proof of satisfactory completion of a hunter education class or be in possession of the Apprentice Hunting License (along with other required licenses), while hunting any species in Tennessee.

AG Says Info Stolen from 3 million Residents in Equifax Hack
AP Thursday September 21, 2017

Tennessee's attorney general says information was stolen from more than 3 million state residents when hackers infiltrated the credit reporting company Equifax.
In a letter to Equifax on Tuesday, Attorney General Herbert Slatery says he's echoing a letter from 44 fellow attorneys general expressing concern over the breach.
Slatery wrote that Equifax should extend its deadline for free credit monitoring services from Nov. 21 until at least Jan. 31.
He wrote that Equifax should also extend a Nov. 21 deadline to reimburse customer fees for freezing Equifax credit reports, and should reimburse fees from other credit reporting agencies.
Slatery requests copies of notices Equifax is sending to people whose dispute-related documents were accessed or credit card numbers were exposed.
Slatery says Equifax should let his office know about any scams.
