Georgia Lt. Governor Visits Albany

Georgia's Lt. Governor says a new law may help bring a college and career academy to Albany.

Casey Cagle attended a fundraiser at Merry Acres in Albany today.

He told us he's happy Senate Bill 2 passed and was signed into law. 

It will make it easier for high school juniors and seniors to earn college associate's degrees while in high school.

 And that's not the only benefit. 

"With what the local board in Dourghtey county is looking to do in creating the college and career academy is really going to accelerate that as well," Lt. Governor Casey Cagle said. 

School districts will be able to apply for grants to help students earn college degrees.
