Tennessee Governor Bill Lee on Wednesday made two additional appointments to the Megasite Authority of West Tennessee.
Tipton County Mayor Jeff Huffman and Charlie Tuggle will join the 11-person board, which will provide oversight for the new $5.6 billion project from Ford.
The Tennessee Legislature finished its special session on Ford’s $5.6 billion electric truck project Wednesday by approving $884 million in spending and creating a Megasite Authority of West Tennessee board to oversee operations.
“This is the largest single economic investment in rural Tennessee’s history,” Gov. Bill Lee said. “… It is, most importantly, a win for western Tennessee’s workforce.”
