Georgia governor applauds bill to aid infrastructure
He said he was pleased with the state's Department of Transportation’s work on focusing on infrastructure repairs and improvements.
“Georgia’s legislators demonstrated leadership, foresight and courage ... as they took the tough but much needed steps to pay for our ever-growing transportation needs,” Deal said. “We faced obligations that could no longer be ignored, and current resources were simply not enough to preserve the infrastructure we need to get to work, to safely take children to school on buses and to keep the lifeblood of our economy pumping.
“I look forward to signing this legislation into law and seeing the Department of Transportation provide an excellent service to the people of this state.”
