NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The state Labor and Workforce Development Department says more than 30,000 Tennesseans receiving federal unemployment benefits will see their payments reduced because of automatic federal budget cuts that took effect this month.
The department said in a news release issued Thursday that people will start being notified by mail detailing the reduction in their benefits no later than March 22.
MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WMOT) -- Permits issued in Tennessee for single family housing construction surged to nearly 1500 units in January, but a mid-state economist says builders shouldn’t break out the champagne just yet.
According to Middle Tennessee State’s Business and Economic Research Center, 1491 single-family housing permits were issued statewide in January. That’s the highest number since September of 2008, but still well below the nearly 1800 permits issued in April of 2008.
