However, Mullis said $10,000 for the Patrick Cleburne statue at Ringgold Gaps wayside park and $10,000 for a train-viewing platform in Ringgold remain in the budget.
State Sen. Don Thomas (R-Dalton) said the college project is just one of many items the governor cut. The governor also vetoed funding that would have gone toward the development of a new hotel at Daltons Northwest Georgia Trade and Convention Center, he said.
I dont think the vetoes have hurt us severely in the Northwest Georgia area, Thomas said. Of course, wed have felt better if (the college campus money) had been included but I dont think it means we cant expect it to be in next year
Mullis said hell ask for more than just planning money next year for the college project.
