Governor Backs Rail For Metro Atlanta
"After six years of inaction on transit, Gov. Sonny Perdue surprised the state when he pledged his full support for a pilot commuter rail line from Atlanta to Lovejoy and Griffin, as well as for a substantial increase in the state's X-Press bus program."
"So what happened? Why did the governor do a complete 180 and decide to take a leadership role on an issue that has been driving some people crazy?"
"That issue is traffic. That issue is a lack of state funding for transit. That issue is the limited options people have to get around in our region and state other than in a car."
