Albany- Florida governor, Jeb Bush was unable to reach a water-sharing agreement with Georgia and Alabama by the Sunday midnight deadline.

Instead of requesting an extension, Florida will ask the courts to decide how much water each state should draw from tri-state water resources.

Georgia lawmakers say going to court may not be a such a bad idea. "I'd hate to go to court, but I'd rather see us go to court than sign a bad agreement for Georgia. Where it is going I'm not sure, but it's important we not sign a bad agreement for Georgia," says Representative Bob Hanner from Parrot.

Representative Hanner says if the governors had decided to implement the tentative agreement it would have been favorable for Georgians.
