Revenues Beat Projections
AP Thursday May 25, 2017

Tennessee general fund tax collections have exceeded expectations by $159 million in April.
The revenues reflecting economic activity in the previous month include corporate franchise and excise tax collections that came in at $141 million higher than projections.
Sales taxes beat estimates by another $34 million.
Through the first nine months of the budget year, general fund tax collections beat budgeted estimates by $579 million.
The state's healthy surpluses were frequently cited by opponents of Gov. Bill Haslam's 6-cent gas tax increase that was signed into law earlier this month.
But supporters of the governor's transportation plan argued that it made bigger cuts in taxes in other areas, and that general fund revenue shouldn't be used to pay for roads.
April fuel taxes were $3.8 million more than budget estimates.


Suicides Increase in Tennessee

A new report shows that suicides in Tennessee are increasing with middle-aged people being most at risk.
The report by the Tennessee Suicide Prevention Network shows that suicides increased by nearly 13 percent in 2015, the latest year figures are available.
Three people die on average every day in Tennessee from suicide and it is the third-leading cause of death for young people age 10 to 19.
Those who are middle age, especially white males, tend to be at the most risk, the report says, and Tennesseans aged 45 to 64 years old are more than three times more likely to die by suicide than those aged 10 to 19.
The report shows that firearms are used in roughly two-thirds of the suicides in any given year.


Road Construction Halted
Thursday May 25, 2017

Motorists won't be slowed down by road construction as they travel Tennessee's highways this Memorial Day weekend. The Tennessee Department of Transportation will suspend all construction-related lane closures on interstates and state routes beginning at 12:00 noon on Friday, May 26 through 6:00 a.m. on Tuesday, May 30. This will provide maximum roadway capacity for motorists expected to travel in the state this Memorial Day weekend.
Motorists may still encounter some lane closures or restrictions while traveling through long term construction projects. Drivers should be aware that reduced speed limits will be in effect in work zones. Drivers convicted of speeding through work zones where workers are present face a fine of up to $500, plus court fees and possible increased insurance premiums.
AAA estimates 39.3 million Americans will travel 50 miles or more this Memorial Day holiday, a 2.7% increase over last year's numbers. This marks the highest travel volume on record since 2005 for the holiday. The total number of Tennessee travelers is estimated to top 785,000, with nearly 700,000 expected to travel by automobile.
