Gingrey Statement on Court Ruling on Tri-State Water Usage

U.S. Congressman Phil Gingrey made the following statement in response to the ruling by U.S. District Judge Paul Magnuson that delegates the responsibility to Congress to determine how much water may be used from Lake Lanier to supply the metro Atlanta area:

“While I am greatly disappointed by the Court's ruling, the decision leaves little choice but to seek consensus through the legislative process. Congressional inaction is no longer an option, and I stand ready and committed to work in a bipartisan way for a fair resolution that respects and protects the interests of Georgia, Florida, and Alabama.”
