Under Governor Haslam’s results-driven, common sense leadership, Tennessee is recognized as a national leader in education, job creation and fiscal responsibility.
Governor Haslam’s commitment to education is making a difference. Tennessee is the fastest improving state in the country in academic achievement. He has launched the “Tennessee Promise,” the only program in the country to give every graduating high school senior a chance to earn a certificate or degree beyond high school free of charge and with a personal mentor.
Governor Haslam has focused on making Tennessee the No. 1 location in the Southeast for high quality jobs, and for a second year in a row, Tennessee holds the title of “State of the Year” for economic development.
Efficient & Effective Government
Working with the General Assembly, Governor Haslam has balanced the budget every year, kept taxes low, ensured Tennessee has the lowest debt in the country and nearly doubled the state’s savings account. Thanks to his work to make state government more customer-focused, efficient and effective, Tennessee is ranked the third best managed state in the nation.
