John Pezold's thoughts

This legislation amends the code section pertaining to the Georgia Department of Economic Development. The bill requires the DOED to administer a grant program to provide assistance to "military communities." The amount of the grant shall be determined by the department on a case-by-case basis with consideration of the grant goal being proposed and to the extent that furthers the relationship between the military community and military facilities.
