Question of the Weekend
This weekend's weekly Tennessee political question deals with local government bond issues:
Tennessee State Comptroller Justin P. Wilson is expected to release new rules next week that would tighten the present rules under which Tennessee municipalities and counties may issue bonds to finance new schools, roads, stadiums, and other projects. A collapse in the bond markets last year raised questions about risky bond issues by our State's local governments, which ultimately has led to new regulations from the Comptroller's office.
