Providing Efficient and Effective Government at the State Level

Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam (R) is a national leader in leveraging evidence-based policies to sustain the state’s strong fiscal position, foster economic growth, and improve government efficiency. Over the governor’s seven years in office, he has created jobs, tripled Tennessee’s rainy day fund, decreased the state’s debt, and invested in education. This year, Gov. Haslam announced aggressive initiatives to combat the opioid epidemic and reform the state’s juvenile justice system.

Gov. Haslam discussed his goal of making Tennessee’s government one of the most effective in the country.

Susan Urahn, Pew’s executive vice president and chief program officer, provided the welcome.
