Make road grant money available for all

There are some 20,000 miles of federal and state highways in Georgia - the interstate system and major roads that link our cities one to the other, carry our commuters to and from employment centers, and give structure to our thriving logistics industry and interstate commerce.

Parents and children from all types of families need to ‘play’

The differentiation between stay-at-home moms and working moms may not be as pronounced these days as it has been in the past, but I do believe it still is alive and well. I don't think either group works hard to keep this barrier in place; it just seems to exist due to different lifestyle habits, schedules and family routines.
