Statement from Tennessee Republican Party Chairman Chris Devaney; March 14, 2011:

NASHVILLE, TN – Tennessee Republican Party Chairman Chris Devaney released the following statement in response to Governor Bill Haslam’s State of the State Address-

Tonight, Governor Haslam laid out a bold and responsible plan about how to reform the way our state government does business. This plan includes setting clear priorities in our state budget, encouraging entrepreneurship to create an environment for more good-paying jobs, and elevating student achievement in our public schools,” said Tennessee Republican Party Chairman Chris Devaney.

“The Governor delivered to the Legislature a budget that is not only sensible, but also tangible; taxpayers will directly see the impact of how prioritized spending can have a significant impact on their state, city and community,” concluded Devaney.
