Well they are trying, but you got the older hard headed get off my lawn types, that are fighting that every step of the way. 

 

Boy, you nailed one of my cousins exactly with that. He opposed EVERYTHING and ANYTHING that would bring in tax dollars to a poor county.

Blount is far from a poor county.

Granted that they probably won't sell many electric vehicles here. But they are quite popular and growing in the "Woke" States.  I believe that Ford and Tennessee will be more than happy to take their money. 😉

May be just a matter of time until creepy joe mandates them for us.

Good news overall for TN/ EAST TN, but traffic is already abysmal in Blount County. I moved from the Nashville area a few years ago and traffic, and housing supply/demand has progressively gotten worse each year. I guess the secret is out on the Knoxville area. Oh well. Hopefully they make appropriate infrastructure changes to the area to absorb the continued growth, unlike Nashville.

I have always lived in East Tn and it is absolutely amazing how much maryville has changed in the last 20 years.   It used to be such a nice quiet town.  Same can be said for where i live too, i guess its just change and not much we can do about it.  People are moving here from all over, buying houses without even seeing them in person.

I, for one, am not a fan at all of all this.  There's nothing wrong with staying small towns and rural.   our great state is being ruined, and our politicians are doing all they can to hasten making our state like the the others.  Really sad.

Knoxville has been working on infrastructure for the last 25 years since I moved and I can't tell they got a lot done. lol

Because they've stayed 5-10 years behind the curve that whole time. Its the nature of the beast. They need tax money to update the infrastructure, but they don't get the tax money until after its needed.

Not been to Murfreesboro or Cookeville lately? Jeez, it's like they've been GIVING away houses there. 

If you guys think Knoxville is behind in infrastructure, take a drive though downtown Nashville or Chattanooga sometime. Both have only three lanes of interstate running each way through their downtown areas. Both are extremely complicated by the numerous uses of bridges, which would require replacing when the interstate adds lanes. I'd bet that'd be a 10 year project in either city. 

TN is restricted from borrowing money for road projects, which is a good thing, IMO. But it's a bit past critical & quickly advancing upon emergency, IMO.

There's no need to fear. Sleepy Joe is here. He's going to fix all that & more. Relax & enjoy.

Don't spread this around too much, all the yankees moving in here will be voting to change the laws so more roads can be built quicker.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe this is in the TN Constitution. Thus the Legislature cannot change it by fiat, only by a Constitutional Convention, which I think is called by the Gov. 

It's been a while since I've read up on this stuff, so I might be off somewhere there.
