The Vogtle Vortex,
"It's the most expensive power plant in the world"

Note to 2020 Georgia State Legislature:

Do the right thing:

Support SB 112
 Support HB 1031

 

End the financial burden on schools that the 2009 legislature put on schools.

 

UPDATE: HB 1031 was put into a subcommittee by pressure from those who think our tax money should be used to help finance a private project.

Consider: If Georgia Power does not get our tax money to help finance their Vogtle Vortex, then [...horror...shock...] they might need to borrow the money or issue stock or bonds to get it.
