Commuter Rail resolution passes!

Great news from the state capitol!

The Georgia House passed HR 1631 in support of commuter rail service in the Athens – Atlanta – Macon corridor yesterday by a margin of 143 to 12. This resolution states "that the members of the Georgia Transportation Board are urged to help ensure that the existing plans for the Macon to Atlanta to Athens commuter rail lines are implemented with urgency."
