January 16, 2006

Albany- The prescription plan was one of the major pieces of legislation Congress passed last year. A south Georgia Congressman says big issues this year will include the War, Allegations of Corruption in Congress, and Appropriations.

In Albany Monday night, Representative Sanford Bishop said he'll work to bring Georgia's Taxpayer dollars back to the state. He hopes to get significant appropriations from several committees for south Georgia.

"These are Georgia dollars paid by Georgia taxpayers and certainly we want to make sure that we have our share so that we can have the services of the federal government," said Rep. Sanford Bishop,(D)-Georgia.

He says money will go toward agriculture, military, and transportation programs.Congress reconvenes next month.
