NASHVILLE (AP) - The speakers of the House and Senate say they will seek a review of a no-bid contract with a real estate firm that once counted fellow Republican Gov. Bill Haslam as one of its investors.

The Haslam administration initially hired Chicago-based Jones Lang LaSalle for a $1 million contract to consult on office space issues. That deal has since evolved into five-year, $38 million contract to manage all state-owned and leased properties outside of higher education.

Before his election in 2010, Haslam included Jones Lang LaSalle among the dozens of companies in which he held investments of more than $10,000. He has since placed his investments other than family-owned Pilot Flying J into a blind trust.

Haslam's office has denied the stake in the company influenced the contract.
