Privatized roads in Ga's future?

Creative Loafing reports on Gov. Perdue's upcoming trip to Europe (9/27-10/3), where he will "meet with executives from Cintra, a Spanish company considered a global leader in privatized roads."
From the official press release, Perdue says:
Europe has some of the world’s most innovative ideas on financing transportation infrastructure. We will see some of these ideas first-hand in order to understand what approaches could be used here in Georgia.
Before he gets all fired up to privatize public infrastructure, Perdue should take another look at the other innovative ideas on transportation that Europe has developed.
