Broun Welcomes General Biofuels Georgia Expansion, Investment in 10th District
Sep 20, 2012 -
U.S. Congressman Paul Broun, M.D. (GA-10) today issued the following statement in reference to Governor Nathan Deal’s announcement that General Biofuels Georgia, LLC will construct a wood pellet manufacturing plant in Sandersville investing $60 million and creating 35 jobs.
“It is a strong credit to our local economic development teams and Governor Deal’s commitment to making Georgia the premier business state in the nation that we see company after company expanding here at home. Charles Lee, the Executive Director of the Development Authority of Washington County, deserves special recognition for working with General Biofuels to successfully demonstrate that Sandersville offers the perfect environment for their new pellet production facility. I would also like to thank Georgia Department of Economic Development Project Manager Renée Rosenheck and Co-director Jill Stuckey for connecting General Biofuels to our community.
“Under the leadership of Governor Deal, Georgia is showing how pro-growth policies and reduced government restrictions can turn this economy around. The manufacturing jobs created by General Biofuels will keep more Georgians employed for the long term, and lead to local growth and investment in our district. This is a great example of the sustainable job creation that conservative, free market policies can spur around America.”
