Gov. Haslam at the National Governor's Association Winter Meeting

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON, DC (WSMV) -

This weekend, Washington D.C., is hot to the National Governor's Association Winter Meeting.

Governors are discussing issues affecting their states, and Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam is talking a lot about education.

"The challenge for America is the jobs of the future are going to call for a lot more degrees and certificates," Haslam said. "Our big move in Tennessee right now is what we call the Tennessee Promise, the promise to every Tennessean who graduates high school that we'll give you two years of community college or technology school absolutely free of tuition or fees. We think it's a big game changer."

Tomorrow more education talks will continue, along with discussions about job growth and ways to combat prescription drug abuse.
