Some Georgia road projects on hold amid federal budget standoff
The delays are not lost on two members of Georgia’s congressional delegation who serve on the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee.
U.S. Rep. Hank Johnson, D-Lithonia, blamed Trump for the standoff, in its fifth week and now the longest federal government shutdown in U.S. history. He said he feared the number of delayed road projects could double if the budget is not resolved.
“Just as the president called on states to be better partners on transportation and infrastructure issues, I would ask the president to do the same,” he said. “Georgia is doing its part, and he should do his.”
