Voting Has Begun for Overhead Sign Message Contest
tn.gov Tuesday January 27, 2015

Voting has begun for the winners from TDOTs first ever Dynamic Message Sign Contest. Over the past two weeks, TDOT has received more than 3,400 entries for possible safety messages for the overhead signs located across Tennessee. The entries were narrowed down to 15 messages that cover safety issues such as distracted driving, seatbelt usage, impaired driving, speeding, and aggressive driving. To vote, just go to the TDOT website and check the box next to your favorite message. Voting will continue through Friday, Feb. 6, 2015. The winning messages will be posted online the following week, and will be placed in rotation to run on the overhead Dynamic Message Signs statewide throughout the year. The main purpose of the signs is to alert motorists of incidents, lane blockages, hazardous road conditions, or Amber Alerts. In 2012, TDOT became the first DOT in the nation to display roadway fatality numbers on the overhead signs. In addition to the fatality statistics, safety messages are displayed during off-peak travel times.

 


Applications Now Available for Industrial Hemp Production
TN Dept. of Agriculture Tuesday January 27, 2015

The Tennessee Department of Agriculture is now accepting applications from farmers and producers interested in growing industrial hemp. As provided in the 2014 Farm Bill, industrial hemp may only be grown as part of a research or pilot project. Industrial hemp is Cannabis sativa L., the same plant species as marijuana. However, industrial hemp has significantly lower tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) content and is distinguished by its use and chemical makeup. You will find industrial hemp in a variety of products, including fabric, textiles, fibers, and foods. More than 30 nations grow industrial hemp as an agricultural commodity. To download an application and Memorandum of Understanding go to tn.gov/agriculture. If your application is approved, the Ag Department will assist in obtaining your seed in compliance with requirements of the Drug Enforcement Agency. Individuals are not permitted to import their own seed.
