MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (AP) -- Gov. Bill Haslam and U.S. Senators Lamar Alexander and Bob Corker are to testify Monday in Murfreesboro at a Republican dominated Congressional field hearing.
U.S. Reps. Scott Desjarlais, Diane Black and Marsha Blackburn, all Republicans like the other three, also are scheduled to attend. The subject is "Tennessee Job Creation: Do Federal Government Regulations Help or Hinder Tennessee's Economic Development?"
The hearing will be conducted by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., said the federal government has yet to grasp the effects of what he called burdensome regulations that obstruct job growth and economic recovery.
The hearing will be at the Business and Aerospace Building at Middle Tennessee State University.
