Governor’s budget leaves out $16 million for Camden technical college

Increased spending for teachers, job training, harbor deepening and crime reduction topped Gov. Nathan Deal’s agenda laid out Wednesday in his election-year edition of the State of the State Address.

Locally, the budget includes $2.5 million to equip a new classroom building and truck-driving range at Altamaha Technical College in Brunswick. However, it doesn’t include $16 million for a Camden County campus for a technical college.

“Usually the governor allows for room for legislators to include projects that have priority,” said Rep. Jason Spencer, R-Woodbine.
