Norris Elected Chair of TACIR
NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Tennessee Senate Majority Leader Mark Norris (R-Collierville) was elected yesterday to serve as Chairman of the Tennessee Advisory
Commission on Intergovernmental Relations (TACIR). The Commission, made up of state House and Senate members, local government officials, and private citizens was created by the Tennessee General Assembly in 1978 to monitor federal, state, and local government relations and to make recommendations for improvement to the legislature.
“TACIR continues to be an important forum for intergovernmental communication and problem-solving in Tennessee. I am grateful to the commission for trusting me with the chairmanship,” said Norris, who has served on the commission since his years as a Shelby County Commissioner. “I hope to work with my legislative colleagues and the other members of TACIR to find solutions for Tennessee’s 21st Century concerns.”
