NASHVILLE -- Gov. Bill Haslam said Tuesday he expects to sign into law the bill allowing referendums this year on establishing new municipal school districts in the Memphis suburbs.

The governor said in an interview with The Commercial Appeal, however, that he would have preferred more time for suburban residents to review the Transition Planning Commission's recommendations on the design of the new countywide school district before they vote.
