NASHVILLE (AP) - Gov. Bill Haslam will conclude budget hearings for his state departments on Tuesday.

The hearings are for fiscal year 2013-14. Departments scheduled to meet before the governor are TennCare, Correction, Economic and Community Development, and Higher Education.

Despite improving state revenues, Haslam has asked state departments to develop plans for a 5% spending cut as a fallback.

The hearings began last Tuesday. Proceedings can be viewed online.
