Rep. Susan Lynn, R-Mt. Juliet, welcomes Gov. Bill Haslam to Lebanon on Feb. 9 to speak on his then-proposed IMPROVE Act during a town hall meeting at the Wilson County Courthouse. Haslam’s IMPROVE Act, which passed later in 2017, cuts the sales tax on groceries another half percent to 4.5 percent, while it increases the road user fee or gas tax by 7 cents for a gallon of gas and 12 cents for a gallon of diesel fuel and increases car registration fees by $5 for the average passenger vehicle, which is expected to bring in $278 million in new dollars for Tennessee Department of Transportation projects
