Public outcry saved the Georgia Archives from closing this fall. But supporters are gearing up for a budget fight in the General Assembly now. The governor’s proposed budget gives the archives more than $4.3 million – roughly the same as this year after the budget cuts that forced layoffs and reduced public access.
Governor Nathan Deal said Monday he will be proposing more state money to help pay for the deepening of the Savannah port. Deal told the Georgia Ports Authority he plans to include an additional $50 million in his budget proposal for the fiscal year that begins in July.
