Saturday morning dose of Govt ARROGANCE

TVA spokesman will not disclose how much rent they are paying

Moulton declined to specify what TVA now pays to rent its office complex, claiming such details "could hinder our negotiations" for a new contract.

Governor Bredesen will not tell our elected representatives how much taxpayer money he is giving away in corporate welfare to Toyota.

If necessary, he said, he would not tell the legislature about the full meaning of a bill intended to offer incentives to lure a large industry here.

Sevier County Planning Commission will not identify parcels of property by address.

Unlike our municipal planning commissions, the county group prepares an agenda in a way that seeks to convey as little information as possible to the general public. It lists property to be discussed not by address or road, but by its tax map number.
