Statement from Senate Republican Caucus Chairman Bill Ketron regarding the Governor’s Proposal to establish a partnership with Nissan for workforce development

NASHVILLE, Tenn.  —  “I am very excited about the new workforce training center that the Governor has proposed today in partnership with Nissan in Smyrna.  It will be a tremendous benefit to Rutherford County.  It has the potential not only to create jobs in Middle Tennessee, but offers state-of-the art training opportunities for thousands of Tennesseans.  Jobs and education remain at the top of our priority list.  I look forward to supporting this proposal as it moves to the General Assembly for approval.”

“I was also very pleased to see a proposal for continued reduction in the state’s sales tax on food.  In addition, the Governor’s proposal provides tax relief for our senior citizens who depend on investment income for retirement and who pay the Hall Income Tax.   While Washington talks about tax increases, Tennessee remains committed to providing tax relief for our citizens while balancing our state budget.”
