NASHVILLE (AP) – Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam's annual budget hearings are getting underway this week.

The Republican governor will kick off the annual public discussions with agency leaders at the Capitol on Tuesday with the Education Department.

Wednesday's hearings include the correction and safety departments, while the governor will hear from the revenue and agriculture departments on Thursday. Friday's hearings include the higher education and the state lottery.

The embattled Department of Children's Services presents its budget prorates next week, while the Transportation Department wraps up the hearings on Nov. 25.

The hearings come among sluggish revenue reports for the state. Through the first quarter of the year, the state's general fund collections have fallen nearly $100 million short of projections.
