THOMAS CO., GA (WALB) -

Local Governments and School systems could lose funding in coming years because of a change at the state level.

The department of revenue revised the formula for calculating reimbursements for losses under the Forest Land Protection Act.

The change caps reimbursements.

After many local leaders expressed concern about a potential large reduction in revenue, the state adjusted the formula for this year only.

We'll stay on top of this to see if South Georgia communities could be impacted in the future.
