Haslam-O-Meter

Tracking the promises of Bill Haslam

Give the University of Memphis more autonomy

"I think the University of Memphis needs more autonomy. I think the board of the University of Memphis should be able to hire and fire their own president, they should be able to set their own tuition."

Review multi-language driver's license tests

"The current practice of administering the (state driver's license) written test in multiple languages should be reviewed to examine its costs and benefits."

Work to eliminate cap on charter schools

Will "work to increase the prevalence of charter schools in Tennessee by supporting removal of restrictions such as the cap on the number of charter schools allowed to operate in the state as well as restrictions on who can re-enroll in charter schools."

Improving Motor Vehicles Department

Will “improve the efficiency of the Tennessee Department of Motor Vehicles and make sure taxpayers are treated like valuable customers, the way we do in business.”
