Governor Holding Off on Special Session
Tuesday, 01 September 2009

September 1--  Georgia Governor Sonny Perdue says he's trying to avoid calling a special session of the state legislature to deal with shrinking state revenues.

"Doing this administratively, it allows us to be flexible.  The way the revenue is now, it's just a snapshot.  It may change after lawmakers leave a special session, so this allows us to take care of business and gives us a barometer for instant feedback on how we're doing," he said during a visit to Vidalia.

"I'm very pleased with our employees, teachers and everybody else, and how they are picking up and doing the job in light of these revenue downfalls.  My goal is to do this with very little impact on human services," the governor observed.
