Description

This exclusive NewsChannel 5 investigation exposed some of Tennessee's most closely guarded secrets - secrets about how more than $1 billion in incentives had been offered to just two major corporations and how that money had been used by Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam's administration as leverage to accomplish a political goal of defeating one of the nation's biggest unions. It's an investigation that made national news, including stories in the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times. The investigation also highlighted how much the public is kept in the dark as a result of exemptions to the Tennessee Public Records Act.
