The University of Tennessee remains under scrutiny as Gov. Phil Bredesen appoints a special committee to investigate President John W. Shumaker's use of UT's plane and credit cards. The committee also will examine Shumaker's award of a no-bid contract to an acquaintance. Shumaker said he has reimbursed the university for trips on which he ended up visiting friends or family and, according to the July 15 issue of The Tennessean, he will write a check for any situation where there appears to be ambiguity.
