Governor Perdue Invites Alabama, Florida Back to Water Negotiations

Governor Sonny Perdue has invited the governors of Alabama and Florida to return to the table and resume water negotiations, offering 40 different dates for the two to consider. Governor Perdue offered to host the talks in Atlanta or meet the governors at another mutually agreed-upon location.

“Water issues have dominated the headlines in recent days, and I have read statements from both of you that indicate your willingness to resume water negotiations,” Governor Perdue wrote in a letter to both governors. “Judge Magnuson’s insistence on a Congressional solution was specifically related to authority for Lanier and did not address the allocation of water in the basins between the three states. I have always believed that a negotiated settlement that protects the rights and resources of all three states is the most lasting solution.”
