Just as it seemed that Governor Haslem plan for each TBR 4 year institution to have their own governing board, John Morgan resigned. John Morgan deemed Haslem’s plan unworkable and not even clear.
Haslem for a long time has pretty much had support to push any legislation through finally received some push back. Memphis and MTSU have been quoted as saying that they are excited for the plan. TSU, APSU, Tenn Tech, and ETSU have been really quiet since those smaller schools just don’t have the political leverage to implement change.
Haslem’s plan hits the Congress floor next week. We will see if the members support it.
