I am writing to you with concerns I have about the Tennessee Education Lottery scholarship program in light of Gov. Bill Haslam’s recent proposal to siphon money from lottery scholarships to pay for his proposed Tennessee Promise program. After working for more than 20 years to pass legislation in Tennessee to create the lottery and the lottery scholarship program, I continue to watch the program closely and any legislation that affects it.

On Dec. 16, 18 of 25 Wilson County Commissioners voted to send a request in the form of private act legislation containing the proposed expo center funding options to state Rep. Mark Pody for consideration by the legislature. Those 18 commissioners based their voting decision on the justification of a Dec. 4 publicly released study, which is dishonestly represented as a feasibility study, but is indisputably not so, nor is it titled such. Please ask Pody to request that a majority of the commission re-do its homework, and also get a reality check.
