Albany - Georgia leaders make a priority list for 2004.

At the annual Eggs and Issues breakfast at the Albany Civic Center today, lawmakers answered questions about economic development, transportation, natural resources and education.

Senator George Hooks says the number one budget priority is to replenish Georgia's reserve fund. He explains, "We are going into this as better braced than anybody else in the nation. The first of January this year, our reserve funds were over 800 million dollars. We are in good shape compared to other states, but never the less, these are cautious times."

South Georgia priorities included, of course, keeping the Marine Base off the BRAC list, widening State Route 133 from Valdosta to Albany and the Albany River Front project.
