Today the Chamber of Commerce's in Knox, Blount and Oak Ridge all urged the legislators to make the extension of the Pellissippi Parkway a 2012 legislative priority. Extending the parkway will bring much needed jobs to an already struggling economy and high unemployment and underemployment area. This is one priority that I join with the Chamber of Commerce's in encourage the legislature to complete. Our future depends on it. See the WVLT VolunteerTV News report here.
