Special Funding Used to Help Construct New Housing in Kingsport
City housing leaders in Kingsport have approved over $4 million in special funding for new upscale apartments along Fort Henry and East Stone Drive. The agency plans to work with local developers using tax increment funding to help construct 265 units in South Kingsport and a new housing complex with over 160 apartments. Developer Mitch Cox also used the TIF funding method for a set of new apartments currently under construction off Bluff City Highway in Bristol, TN.

Ruling Could Impact Bristol Cop Killer on Death Row
It doesn't look like execution will be anytime soon for Nickolus Johnson, on death row for a decade for killing Bristol police officer Mark Vance. Johnson is in the early stages of a new round of appeals. But a new court ruling in Nashville clears one hurdle that could've staved off Johnson's other executions longer. The ruling against death row inmates says they failed to prove that Tennessee's lethal injection drug and method is cruel and unusual punishment because it leads to a painful and lingering death. Rather, the judge said it's had no such consequences when used for executions by other states.

Haslam Says It's Too Early to Talk About Job Losses With Possible Privatization on The Horizon
Gov. Bill Haslam, while visiting Jonesborough, talked about proposals currently out for bid that could privatize a large swath of state jobs, including positions in prisons, schools and state parks, that he said could save the state millions and put the money back into state services... “That we can put into mental health services and child services and keeping tuition lower at colleges, so we feel like that's our obligation.” Haslam said its premature to say if large state job losses would take place... “It's awfully early. We're just now seeing if there are people who would be interested and then we'll see if the proposals are something. Ultimately, like I said, is the six-and-a-half million Tennesseans to get the very best service for the very lowest price.”
