Legislative Listening Session in Thomasville

Georgia Chamber of Commerce officials stopped by Thomasville Wednesday afternoon as part of more than 20 legislative listening sessions across the state.

This gave area business leaders the opportunity to voice their concerns like the medical malpractice insurance crisis facing the state.

"If you have companies that are looking to expand to do business here or new companies coming in, they're not going to do it if they don't think they have quality access to health care," says Earl.

Rogers will present issues to the Georgia Chamber's Governmental Affairs Council in October. They will then formulate a legislative agenda for 2004.
