Governor Deal to sign bill in Macon | News
Gov. Nathan Deal stopped in Macon today on Poplar Street Park to sign the Downtown Renaissance Act and to congratulate the Mercer University basketball team.
Sponsored by state Rep. Allen Peake, R-Macon, the Downtown Renaissance Act, created with the Georgia Downtown Association, provides $5 million in funding for the Department of Community Affairs for four years. The funding helps in "providing technical assistance and loans to municipal corporations" for downtown development projects in Georgia.
Deal, a double Mercer graduate, will also congratulate Mercer men's basketball team with an official commendation on their NCAA tournament achievements.
