GDOT cries for help

ABH relays GDOT's pleas for money from the state legislature.

A few unanswered questions:
  1. How did they get into such a dramatic budget shortfall?
  2. What exactly do the "department's 4,500 employees" do?
I understand that it's a huge institution managing many complex projects, but it would be nice to see a breakdown of that 4,500 figure (road crews, administrators, planners, etc.)
