Tax vote brings governor to Augusta

Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal will speak at a breakfast in Augusta on Tuesday to raise awareness about a regional 1 percent sales tax for transportation that will be going to voters next month.

The breakfast is sponsored by Connect Georgia, a Georgia Chamber of Com­merce entity established to promote the tax.

The 8 a.m. breakfast will be held at West Lake Country Club, a gated community.

A referendum on the tax goes to voters July 31.
