IMPROVE Act Signing The Improve Act, according to the Haslam administration, a key piece of his NextTennessee legislative agenda which delivers a safe, reliable and debt-free transportation network while providing the largest tax cut in state history. The three areas where Haslam is holding ceremonies are:

  • The Hamilton County Welcome Center on Interstate 75 North at 10:15 a.m. EDT
  • Acklen Park Drive, on the I-440 overpass in Nashville at 1 p.m. CDT
  • S. 51 S. (at the future I-69 construction site, 0.5 miles southwest of Quality Inn) in Union City at 3 p.m. CDT

The IMPROVE Act is slated to cut nearly $300 million in taxes next year and more than $500 million in taxes annually at full implementation, including a 20 percent decrease in the sales tax on groceries and a $113 million reduction in business taxes on manufacturers.

Nearly 1,000 road and bridge projects across all 95 counties will be delivered through a conservative, responsible and user-based approach of raising the gas tax by six cents and diesel tax by 10 cents, each over the next three years.
