NASHVILLE, Ga.— A boat manufacturing company is planning to expand its facility in south Georgia and is looking to create 50 new jobs in the process. Nathan Deal's office announced Tuesday that Chaparral Boats is expanding its facility in Berrien County.
Nathan Deal said Tuesday he expects an agreement with the federal government to be finalized later this month allowing Georgia to spend $266 million of its own money upfront to start deepening the busy shipping channel to the Port of Savannah.
JACKSON, Miss.-- Mississippi has long been one of the sickest and poorest states in America, with some of the highest rates of obesity, diabetes and heart disease and more than 1 in 7 residents without insurance. And so you might think Mississippi would jump at the prospect of billions of federal dollars to expand Medicaid.
Nathan Deal would deny a tax break for tourist attractions to a planned convention hotel on Jekyll Island because it would be unfair to competing hotels in the area, the governor's spokesman said Tuesday.
