SB 122

You probably all know by now that Senate Bill 122 has passed - the bill providing for public-private partnerships in the construction of Georgia's water infrastructure.  Georgia Water Wire does a great job summing up people's concerns about the bill:

In my opinion, this bill takes decision-power away from the public when it comes to water infrastructure projects, and places way too much emphasis on the construction of new reservoirs to feed Georgia's projected future needs.  We're going to have to see where this all goes, but I have to say I'm a bit worried . . .
