TBI has been dipping into it's Rainy Day Fund.
During a recent meeting of the Senate Finance, Ways and Means Committee ,state Comptroller Justin Wilson reported that for the last four years the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has used it's Rainy Day Fund surplus to balance it's budget. Gov. Bill Haslam has required major budget cuts, and so the TBI intentionally used its reserves to avoid layoffs and meet the required cuts without losing services. TBI leaders cited in the report said they didn't ask for extra funding in budget requests because they didn't expect such requests would be approved under the Governorís budget process. The Comptroller said better communication between the TBI and state budget officials would be necessary for things to improve. "TBI needs to say what they need and what happens if they don't get the money," Wilson suggested. While speaking to lawmakers Tuesday, TBI Director Mark Gwyn said he would use the report to "make a stronger TBI." Committee members said there was never any concern about any wrongdoing within the department.
