I think this Jekyll Island issue is a good one. I’ve actually never been there (or anywhere along Georgia’s coast), but I hear that Jekyll is rather dingy compared to some of the other places up an down the coast.
A measure introduced in the House would create a six-member legislative committee to review all proposed leases on Jekyll, a 7.5-mile barrier island which is required by law to remain 65 percent untouched. It also would extend the Jekyll Island Authority’s oversight of the property by 99 years, which members of the group say is crucial to negotiating long-term deals with hotels.
Georgia needs a good resort-ish beach spot. This should work well.
