NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Following a relatively tough week, Gov. Bill Haslam doesn't have any public events scheduled for this week.
The Republican governor's media advisory for Feb. 9 through Feb. 15 says "no public events."
Last week, Haslam defended the resignation of the commissioner of the Department of Children's Services, as well as dealt with legislation expected to be on the Senate floor Monday night that seeks to guarantee people with handgun-carry permits can store firearms in their vehicles no matter where they are parked.
The commissioner, Kate O'Day, resigned under scrutiny of how her agency handled the cases of children who died or nearly died after the agency investigated reports they'd been abused or neglected.
