Georgia Solves its Drought

It is simply a matter of moving our northern border a little. I don't know what the folks in Tennessee are griping about.
ATLANTA - Thirsting for more water in the midst of a drought, Georgia lawmakers took a step Wednesday toward moving the state line and tapping into a powerful river in a neighboring state.

The Senate unanimously approved a resolution Wednesday asserting that a flawed 1818 survey mistakenly placed Georgia's northern line just short of the mighty Tennessee River. The measure also calls for the governor to establish a commission to sort out the dispute.
I hope this doesn't include the part of Chattanooga that has their aquarium. We already got one of our own.
Other critics also point out the proposed Georgia-Tennessee border change goes beyond a simple dip into the river. Not only would Georgia get a chunk of Chattanooga and thousands of residents could have new home states.
