Metro Atlanta's public transit system plans to hold public hearings to present its proposed budget for the 2014 fiscal year. After the public hearings, the full board will vote on the final budget before the new fiscal year begins on July 1.
Gov. Nathan Deal’s 2014 budget includes small investments in areas he’s targeted, including accountability courts and juvenile justice. Speaking Tuesday at budget hearings at the state Capitol, he told lawmakers Georgia’s continued slow economic recovery nixes any ambitious plans.
This week state lawmakers will be in budget hearings, the time when state agency heads outline their spending. For the Department of Transportation, it may need to be ready for questions about the recent snow storm that rolled through the Georgia last week.
