This week’s print edition of The Tennessee Journal is out in the world. Here are the highlights:

— Lee secures $884M incentive package for Ford’s megasite project.

— Like it or not (and business groups don’t), another special session approaches.

— From the campaign trail: Congressional fundraising, Democrat drops gubernatorial bid, Robinson gets an opponent, and Weston Wamp jumps into the Hamilton County mayor’s race.

— Slatery to lawmakers: I’m not political, you’re political.

Also: Kiffin take the high road, Japan-America Society criticized for honoring Hagerty, and Vaughan likens deficiencies in megasite deal to eating carrot cake without pecans in the icing.
