Albany -- Lt. Governor Mark Taylor says Atlanta road congestion is something all Georgians should be concerned about. The Lt. Governor says Atlanta's economy is suffering because of the struggle on it's roads.

Businesses are staying away from Georgia's capital because of the road congestion. Taylor said "We in South Georgia are dependent on a strong economy in Metro Atlanta. So a transportation system that is fair to Atlanta keeps traffic moving there, and brings the four lane highways we need. Good jobs will follow good transportation."

The state has 430 million dollars in the budget for road improvements. Taylor supports spending half of the money on Atlanta roads.
