No rail funds in state budget (%$!!!?)

AJC reports:

Congressman David Scott accused Gov. Sonny Perdue of stalling the state’s commuter rail project and threatening millions in federal aid when he chose not to include the train in budget proposal.

The Georgia Department of Transportation requested $15.1 million to start a commuter rail from Atlanta to Griffin. However, Perdue included no money in this year’s budget for the train.

Seriously, Perdue? What about this?

Contact him and your other elected officials.
