GNB Update

It's Wednesday...Welcome to the mid-week portion of the GNB Update...

We start with news that will affect how you finance your home. Both the Georgia House and Senate Tuesday gave final approval to an almost $19-billion budget that provides some much-needed tax relief for homeowners. Lawmakers also approved close to $2 billion in spending cuts. The bill now goes to Governor Sonny Perdue awaiting his signature.

Georgia now has its own website on stimulus accountability. Georgia Public Broadcasting reports that the site covers the state's use of funds that are through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. It also allows Georgia residents to report any evidence of fraud to the state inspector's general's office. The stimulus accountability website is available online by clicking here.

And from the blog files, inDECATUR reports on an unseasonably warm day, a nice sunset, and even a full moon, just for good measure. The temperature in Decatur reached almost 80 degrees on Tuesday.

That's the news. But remember to log on to for the latest Georgia-related news all day, all night. Enjoy your Wednesday night.
