A wish list of Albany projects

December 15, 2003

Albany - Saving the Marine Base and promoting tourism are at the top of the Chamber of Commerce's Christmas list to lawmakers. Each year, the Chamber gives lawmakers a list of the projects they hope the state will support financially.

The 2004 legislative agenda includes money for a Cancer Center, $3,000,000 for The Parks at Chehaw expansion, and all support needed to retain and expand MCLB.

"We take many projects to lawmakers. We'll push up against all the doors. Some of them may open, and some of them may not. Then, we'll just have to knock on those doors a little bit harder," said Chamber President Tim Martin.

The Chamber also wants the state to give money to build an Academic Services building at Darton College and to add a new Pharmacy program at Albany State University.
