Haslam Appoints 109 Tennesseans to 48 Boards, Commissions

Press release from the Office of Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam; August 24, 2012:  

NASHVILLE – Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam today announced the appointments of 109 Tennesseans to 48 state boards and commissions.

Earlier this year, the legislature passed Haslam’s recommended reforms to many of the state’s boards and commissions, and most of those changes take effect October 1, 2012.

The governor continues his review of the state’s complete range of boards and commissions to determine other potential reforms that might be made to improve efficiency, effectiveness and accountability.

“I appreciate the willingness to serve the state and the commitment of these men and women,” Haslam said. “Tennessee will be well-represented on these boards and commissions, and I look forward to continuing our review to make sure Tennesseans have a government responsive to them.”
