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 T-SPLOST."
