GNB Update

It's Monday, the beginning of a new work week...Here's what's happening...

Most riders of a metro Atlanta transit system could find themselves out of work. That's according to a survey from MARTA. WXIA-TV in Atlanta reports that 75 percent could lose their jobs if the C-TRAN transit service is discontinued in Clayton County later this week. But 56 percent of those riders say they plan to use MARTA in place of C-TRAN.

Dozens of bills disappear due to the Crossover Day deadline. The Morris News Service reports that multiple proposals for legislation missed the deadline for consideration at the close of business Friday. The proposals that missed the cut include legalized gambling on horse races, keeping Georgia residents from being forced to buy health insurance, and allowing future governors to appoint the labor, insurance, and agricultural commissioners.

A new company will soon call northeast Georgia home. The Atlanta Business Chronicle reports that ZF Industries will build a 250,000-square foot plant in Gainesville. The new facility is being built to provide transmissions for wind turbines.

GNB is online at, on Twitter at, via e-mail at, and now on Facebook.
