Legislative Staff Now Distributing Governor’s News Summary

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Staffers in the state Senate have begun retransmitting Republican Gov. Bill Haslam’s daily news summary through social media.
The moves come in response to the Haslam administration last week cutting the e-mail distribution of the early-morning news roundup from 1,100 to about 150.
The Senate Democratic Caucus on Monday began posting a copy of the news clippings on its Facebook page, while a spokesman for Republican Senate Speaker Ron Ramsey of Blountville sent out a link to the document on Twitter.
Haslam officials said the changes were made to make the e-mail list more manageable, but acknowledged there were no cost savings involved in sending the e-mail to fewer people.
