Dennis O’Hayer has posted part 2 of his interview with Gov. Deal, discussing Charter Schools, water supply and TSPLOST. Part One is available here.

Gov. Deal has reported that sales tax revenues for December were down 1.2% over 2010.

Plans to convert the shoulders of 400 to traffic lanes are coming under fire over public safety concerns.

HOT lane prices on 85 will go down for off-peak hours, including weekends.

Kyle Wingfield and Jay Bookman have both written columns in support of limiting lobbyist gifts to elected officials.

The Transportation Safety Administration has identified a new revenue source: change left behind in  airport security lines.

State Rep. Kip Smith (R-Columbus) has been charged with DUI in Atlanta. Smith allegedly blew a .091 roadside, while the legal limit is .08. Note that you can be charged with a .05 BAC, and drivers under 21 can be charged with a .02 BAC.

The Georgia Alliance for Ethics Reform held a press conference at the State Capitol this week, urging passage of a limit on lobbyist gifts among other measures.

Now, it’s off to Waffle House for a dark waffle, rather than a short stack.

Tax sales on the Internet and fix the revenue problem.
