Public Law 699
Enacted in 1988, Tennessee Public Law 699 requires TDOT to provide the Tennessee Historical Commission (THC), a state agency administratively attached to the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation, the opportunity to review and comment on any project that might demolish or alter a historic property. In addition, it requires that all state agencies consult with the Tennessee Historical Commission prior to transferring ownership of any property out of state ownership.
