Albany-- Healthcare, transportation, and water usage topped the list of concerns raised at a chamber discussion in Albany today. Albany Chamber president Tim Martin says the sessions create a key dialogue to help new industry locate in Southwest Georgia.

"If we want the industry to move to Albany, Dougherty County and Southwest Georgia because we have beneath our ground an inexhaustible supply of water, then the state regulatory and legal climates need to allow industry to tap into that water supply" said Chamber president Tim Martin.

The listening sessions are critical in the Georgia Chambers efforts to gather local input to advance their Legislative Agenda.
