April 23, 2004 Albany-- A couple of hundred people greeted the Governor at Albany Technical College this morning. Governor Perdue says the first week in May is likely when he will call a special legislative session to fix the state budget.
This week Perdue has visited 20 cities across the state, talking about what was accomplished in this year's legislative session, and why he is calling lawmakers back.
The Governor calls it his Accountability tour. Perdue said "You are coming out interacting with people. They are whispering in your ear things you have done right. Things that you need to do a better job of. And that's the way it ought to be."
The Governor said politics mirror NBC's hit show 'The Apprentice.' "Every so often you get to the ballot box and say you're hired or you're fired. That's right."
Governor Perdue is calling for a special legislative session because the state budget isn't balanced. "We can't tolerate overspending by $90 million. We've got a balanced constitutional provision, and we're going to come back and get it right."
The Governor posed for pictures and shook a lot of hands this week. Taking his thoughts on the lawmakers work directly to Georgians.
The Governor also visited Moultrie, Camilla, Thomasville, and Bainbridge today, wrapping up his state tour.
