Something’s cooking on the brouhaha over whether or not to extend tolls for Ga. 400 beyond next year’s expiration date.
Gov. Sonny Perdue has scheduled a 10:30 a.m. Friday presser. Which means some news is about to be made.
My personal guess had been that Perdue would back Nathan Deal, the Republican nominee to replace him, who has made ending the toll on Ga. 400 a part of his campaign platform.
But I’ve also been told that Gena Evans, executive director of the State Road and Tollway Authority, has been meeting with state lawmakers — and asking them not to attack the governor should he back an extension of the Ga. 400 toll.
It’s not like we’ve got a lot of transportation dollars out there.
