The Georgia legislature has passed a transportation bill that the governor says he can sign.  In his weekly legislative report, Senator Jeff Mullis who chairs the transportation committee in the senate said:

The House and Senate came together and passed real transportation funding solutions for Georgians, which promotes economic growth and makes Georgia more attractive to potential businesses and residents. Investing in our infrastructure and freight corridors will help us move Georgia products, as well as goods and services, through our state.  By opening freight corridors, the supply and demand channels will move quickly and produce a more stable economy.  Products and service will reach across the state and even into neighboring states. This is a big first step toward reducing the congestion and gridlock that prevents Georgians from easily getting to their jobs and families. 

Mullis represents Chattooga, Walker, Dade and Catoosa counties in the Georgia State Senate.
