I was at the sub-committee hearing Tuesday on the TWRA/sunset issue. The bill went through. Mr. Nicely made some amendments to Mathey's bill but they died due to lack of a second. The only thing was the senate and house leaders can each appoint a member of the TWRC, raising the number to fifteen. You can go to www.tn.gov
and follow the yellow brick road to get info on bills, officials, and, I believe, a schedule of hearings.
TWRA receives no funds from the state.
