Milton County Update

Georgia House Speaker Glenn Richardson indicates the formation of Milton County will probably not make it out of the legislature this year. The creation of a new county would require a constitutional amendment moving the cap on the number of counties from 159 to 160 (yes, non-Georgia readers you read that right, 159 counties) or have two other counties merge to create room under the cap. Either method would require a 2/3 majority in both houses to create the new county and Richardson says that just ain't happening.

So guess what children? We get to roll around in this mess same time next year. Sandy Springs gnawed its bone for 25 years and finally succeeded. There's no reason to think the Miltonites won't do the same.
