Governor Perdue Announces Commitment to Reaching Agreement in 2010

Governor Perdue was quoted as saying that he would prefer to reach an agreement with the Governors of Florida and Alabama, rather than leave it to another set of Governors.  Additionally, he stated his desire for the General Assembly to vote on an agreement this session.  Any agreement between the three states would need to be ratified by their respective legislatures and possibly congressional delegations.  He also stated that he would be willing to call together a special session of the legislature in order to ratify the agreement in 2010.
