WASHINGTON- Today, U.S. Sen. Saxby Chambliss, R-Ga., made the following statement correcting an erroneous headline regarding his stance on TSPLOST:
The Georgia Public Broadcasting story regarding my stance on TSPLOST contained an erroneous headline that has since been corrected
I have consistently stated that I support the T-SPLOST approach, which lets the people of Georgia decide if the proposal is in the best interest of their community and region based on the estimated cost and project list.
I personally plan to vote in favor of the TSPLOST in my hometown of Moultrie because I believe it will create jobs for southwest Georgia and make a very rural part of the state more attractive for economic development.
I think Georgians should make up their own minds and vote their conscience on the T-SPLOST referendum on July 31, based on the facts for their region. That is why I have not and will not endorse TSPLOST.
