TACIR recognized Senator Douglas Henry at its November meeting with a resolution honoring his meritorious service on the Commission. Senator Henry served on the Commission from 1981 through 2014. He will be sorely missed!
TACIR has partnered with the Middle Tennessee State University Business and Economic Research Center to provide an Internet site to track the state economy during the recovery from the recession that began in December 2007. The site will permit the reader to follow labor force status including employment and unemployment numbers; housing data including a housing price index and construction activity; and sales tax collections. These data are available for the state and for 10 Metropolitan Statistical Areas across the state. Presented graphically, the data may also be downloaded for use at the reader’s convenience. (More)
