Governors Continue to Work Towards a Solution

January 17th, 2008 by Mike Vasilinda

Georgia Governor Sonny Purdue told Georgia lawmakers yesterday that he would not let other states stop Georgia from using water for development and growth. At issue is how much water Georgia can use from Lake Lanier. A record drought and reduced water flow into Florida is already having an impact on oyster harvests in Apalachicola. Florida Governor Charlie Crist says he is working for an equitable solution.

“The Governor is a friend of mine,” Crist said. “I’m going to do everything I can to help Florida and he should work hard to help Georgia. And I’m sure Governor Riley will do everything to help Alabama. It’s what each governor should do. In this situation, with the three states, we have to work together, to come to an agreement and I believe that we will , to make sure things work out best for all three states.”

The three governors met in November and promised to agree on a plan acceptable to all three states. Crist refused to comment specifically on Purdue’s remarks, saying he didn’t know the context in which they were made.
