Georgia Counties Reimbursed for Military Work

Two Georgia counties will be reimbursed for work preparing for a slew of new troops that the military canceled.

Representative Jack Kingston says $75 million will go to Hinesville and Liberty County. The Army backed out of plans to station about 4,000 new troops at neighboring Fort Stewart.

When that decision was announced, Hinesville Mayor Jim Thomas said $450 million had already been spent to build new schools, homes and to expand water services.
