Rep. Price addresses first SSPC breakfast

Congressman Tom Price was the featured speaker at the first breakfast meeting of the new Sandy Springs Perimeter Chamber of Commerce, Jan. 28 at the Westin Atlanta hotel at Concourse.

Price touched on a number of items during his talk, including funding for Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) programs and dealing with the drought situation.

Price said he met with new GDOT Commissioner Gena Abraham and was told the agency is only able to fund 2,400 of the 6,000-plus active projects.

Relative to the drought, Price suggested a three-pronged solution: sue Florida and Alabama to get the Supreme Court involved in a decision on draining Lake Lanier, build reservoirs outside the Corps of Engineers jurisdiction and use the delegation’s influence to pressure the Corps of Engineers into reducing the flows from lakes Allatoona and Lanier.

The next SSPC monthly breakfast Monday Feb. 11 Westin Atlanta with Dr. Betty Seigel as the featured speaker.
