Phil Williams found another one. There's documentary support that the state, at the very least, considered giving Sears the Tennessee Tower as an incentive to relocate here:
In a script for Gov. Bill Haslam to read on camera -- prepared in 2011 by his Department of Economic and Community Development -- a most unusual offer was drafted to try to entice retail giant Sears to relocate its corporate headquarters to Tennessee.
The Sears effort was dubbed "Project Neptune."
"We're so committed to making your new home in Tennessee that we are prepared to offer you one of the premiere buildings in Nashville's thriving downtown," the script read.
"Our state office building, the Tennessee Tower, can be an instantaneous and immediate home for Project Neptune's corporate headquarters. This highly visible and historic building offers over 600,000 square feet of prime office space -- located conveniently across from Legislative Plaza and a stone's throw away from my office in the state Capitol."

Via WPLN's Blake Farmer, we're unlikely to hear anything from the governor's public address on Medicaid expansion or vouchers.
