Fiscal Review Committee

Putnam County's fiscal review committee is recommending passage of a resolution that calls for a delay in the implementation of the Tennessee Voter Confidence Act. Election Administrator Debbie Steidl told the committee that voting machines which meet the requirements of the law may not be available in time to meet the deadline set out by the Act. Meanwhile, the committee also voted to recommend approval of a $3,000 budget amendment to pay legal fees for the election commission. But that recommendation is contingent on the election commission clarifying just what those legal services are.
