NASHVILLE (AP) — A measure to set up a state fair commission has been signed by Gov. Bill Haslam.

The legislation — which passed the House 90-2 and was approved 33-0 in the Senate — creates a state fair and exposition commission within the Department of Agriculture.

The commission will be appointed by the governor.

Sponsors said a Metro Fair Board in Nashville had control of the fair, but the legislation officially makes the state fair a property of the state.

In an attempt to keep the fair in Davidson County, resolutions also passed urging any state fair to be held where the seat of government is located.
