A spokesman says Gov. Nathan Deal would deny a tax break to a planned convention hotel on Jekyll Island because it would be unfair to competing hotels. Deal spokesman Brian Robinson said Tuesday the governor has given plenty of support to the island state park, where Georgia taxpayers have invested $50 million to build a new convention center and beachfront park. Robinson said subsidizing a hotel would be "a step further than we could go."
