Though not faced with the same grid-lock as Atlanta and other metropolitan cities in Georgia, Dawson County has its fair share of transit issues that could benefit from state intervention according to Rep. Kevin Tanner, who was appointed last month as the chair of the House Commission on Transit Governance & Funding. Georgia House of Representatives Speaker David Ralston announced the members of the commission May 25. The commission was created during the recent legislative session by House Resolution 848 to study Georgia's transit needs and analyze ways for the state to adequately plan and provide for those needs.
