The General Assembly's passage of Gov. Haslam's IMPROVE Act will have a tremendous impact on economic development in Tennessee. The provisions in the governor's plan will help the recruitment of new businesses and jobs, and also encourage the expansion of existing Tennessee companies. The IMPROVE Act ensures Tennessee will be able to provide the safe and reliable transportation network needed to support future job growth. Businesses will know that if they come to Tennessee, they will never have an issue getting their product to the market. By reducing taxes on manufacturing businesses, the plan will also encourage Tennessee's rich legacy of manufacturers to continue to invest in the Volunteer State and create new jobs for our residents.
