NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam wants to make sure every student in the Volunteer state has the chance to receive a college education. The process of making that wish a reality starts Tuesday.
Haslam made his wish known during this year's State of the State address.
Lawmakers have drafted a bill called the "Tennessee Promise Scholarship Act of 2014," which is up for debate in the House of Representatives' Education Subcommittee Tuesday afternoon.
The Senate has yet to schedule a debate on their version of the bill.
