Albany - Prayers are being answered in some parts of Georgia where it's raining. But the rainfall we get from these storms won't even come close to ending the drought and replenishing Georgia's dwindling water supply.

Our governor now plans to go to court to prevent Georgia's precious water from being released downstream to Florida. He's suing the Army Corps of Engineers over the use of Georgia's water to protect mussels and sturgeon.

State Representative Gene Maddox of Cairo says he agrees with Sonny Perdue. "I feel like they're making a mistake. I think that we are in such a critical, critical time now. I support the Governor 100% that we've got to protect our water. I think that he's dead right." Georgia's Congressional delegation has proposed legislation that would suspend the Endangered Species Act because of the drought.
