Hamilton Co. (Tn) could lose $2 billion…

…if Georgia gets it way and moves the border:

Hamilton County could lose thousands of acres and real property worth more than $2 billion if Georgia succeeds in moving the Tennessee-Georgia boundary north a mile or so to the 35th parallel, Tennessee lawmakers said Thursday.

“I just got some information today from the Georgia area where there’s been an appraisal made … that has a value of over $2 billion,” said House Majority Leader Gary Odom, D-Nashville.

The comments came as Rep. Odom outlined progress on a resolution he is sponsoring that opposes Georgia’s ongoing effort to revisit what it says is a flawed 1818 survey that set the Tennessee-Georgia border in its current location 190 years ago.

    I’ve largely been quiet recently, but I couldn’t help but notice the good representative called the disputed land the “Georgia area.” Huh.

    I need to call her, actually. I last saw her at Christmas, Indy.

    I’m facing down 30, guys. It’s rough, but at least I have 11 months left before it hits.

    I actually gave up coffee for Lent. How silly was that?
