NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- When former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush briefly veered off topic at an education forum in Nashville this week, he inadvertently took aim at what's expected to be among Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam's legislative priorities this year.
The Republicans were discussing education initiatives Monday when Bush said he relished taking aim at the bigger issues facing his state even if it meant facing stronger resistance.
He said if governors go along with lawmakers more focused on pleasing the interests represented at the Statehouse, the result will be worrying about lesser topics such as "tweaking the workers' comp bill."
Haslam, who plans to introduce workers compensation changes this year, quickly cut off Bush with a laugh, saying "careful!"
