Valdosta - Senator Saxby Chambliss is trying revive work on a military housing project and help south Georgia sub-contractors who haven't been paid millions of dollars for their work.
Work stopped on Moody Air Force Base's Magnolia Grove in March when Carabetta stopped paying sub-contractors.
That forced many of them to downsize or declared bankruptcy.
Senator Chambliss says although Moody isn't responsible, the Air Force dropped the ball.
He's trying to come up with ways to make them pay back the nine million dollars owed to sub-contractors. "We are also going to look at some pots of money the Air Force may have available that they could simply reach into now because its excess money and they can use that to pay these subcontractors," Senator Chambliss says.
Chambliss wants the general accounting office to investigate the Carabetta Group and find out why they were given the contract in the first place and why they're still being awarded government contracts.
He's also working with Arkansas Senator Mark Prior and Congressman Jack Kingston on legislation to assure a similar problem doesn't occur again.
