The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation is looking into Nashville District Attorney Glenn Funk's enrollment in the state pension plan before taking office. WTVF-TV and The Tennessean report that TBI special agents were requested by Attorney General Herbert H. Slatery III and have begun investigating Funk's employment in a part-time job before becoming D.A. and state benefits. The Tennessee District Attorneys General Conference hired Funk to work as a prosecutor after he was elected but before he was sworn in. That allowed him to enroll in the retirement system before employee contributions increased. The conference's executive director was suspended and resigned. Funk has said he will return state money and adjust his retirement plan.
An Arkansas man is facing $57,500 in penalties for illegal solicitation of contributions for Tennessee law enforcement groups. According to the secretary of state's Division of Charitable Gaming, a yearlong investigation found that Gaylon Boshears, his organizations or his agents violated Tennessee law by failing to register with the state and file required financial reports. Investigators found Boshears' Southern Sports & Events Marketing engaged in at least seven unapproved charitable campaigns. Those raised money for the Hendon-McClanahan Lodge 54 of the Fraternal Order of Police in Murfreesboro, Columbia Police Explorers and LaVergne Fraternal Order of Police. Secretary of State Tre Hargett said in a news release that it if solicitors don't follow the law, it can be hard to know whether donations made it to the intended recipients.
The Tennessee House has voted to create a $500 lifetime handgun carry permit. The chamber voted 90-3 on Monday to approve the measure. Current handgun carry permits are valid for five years. The initial application fee is $115, while renewals cost $50. Under the bill, people with lifetime permits would still have to undergo background checks every five years and the Safety Department would still be able to suspend permits for people who are charged with crimes. The Senate is scheduled to vote on its version of the bill on Wednesday. About 500,000 people have handgun carry permits in Tennessee.
Legislation that would allow a person to possess cannabis oil under certain circumstances is headed to the governor for his consideration. The proposal was unanimously approved 26-0 in the Senate and 95-0 in the House on Monday. Republican Sen. Becky Massey of Knoxville, a sponsor of the proposal, emphasized the measure is not a "marijuana" bill, but allows certain amounts of cannabis oil to be used for the treatment of seizures, particularly in the case of children. Massey says the legislation contains provisions to make sure the oil is not abused. The governor is expected to review the legislation when it reaches his desk. (Photo Courtesy WVLT).
