Franklin businessman Bill Lee says he's jumping into the Tennessee governor's race.
The Republican tells The Tennessean that his campaign will formally begin Monday when he plans to roll out a recently purchased RV that he'll use to travel the state.
The 57-year-old Lee is chairman of the Lee Co., which was founded by his grandfather. The company's services include plumbing, electrical and HVAC for residential, business and government customers.
The only other Republican candidate actively campaigning around the state is Randy Boyd, Gov. Bill Haslam's former education adviser and economic development commissioner. Republican state Sen. Mark Green has put his gubernatorial ambitions on hold since being nominated by President Donald Trump to become the next secretary of the Army.

 


Tax Breaks Included in Roads Bill
AP Monday April 24, 2017

Tennessee legislative leaders appear to agree on a bigger property tax break for disabled veterans, which should put the finishing touch on months of work on Gov. Bill Haslam's bill that increases the gas tax to fund roadwork and cuts other taxes.
Both chambers passed the governor's roads bill Wednesday, with the property tax break unresolved.
Senators amended the legislation to increase property tax relief to disabled veterans to up to $175,000 in property value, from $100,000 currently.
House Speaker Beth Harwell says she's fine with that break and assumes her members are too. The House is expected to agree Monday, letting Haslam soon sign the package into law.
The bill cuts sales tax on groceries, corporate taxes on manufacturers and tax on earnings from stocks and bonds.
