District 12 without representation on DOT board

The AJC reported that Twelfth District Department of Transportation Board member Raybon Anderson announced that he will be resigning his post on the Transportation Board effective Feb. 17.
Let's hope that it doesn't bring this battle back to the Gold Dome.
According to the AJC, Anderson's seat on the board was taking too much away from his fertilizer company. But the story hints at the fact that the Transportation Board may be losing some sway over the state's transportation agenda.
"In the current session, legislators have said they were dismayed at the DOT board’s proposals to cut road projects without furloughs or layoffs, and ideas for bills have surfaced that may take power from the DOT board."
