Barnes budget delays rail lines

ATLANTA - Unless the General Assembly kicks in more money for passenger-rail service than Gov. Roy Barnes included in his 2002 budget plan, commuter-rail lines linking Atlanta with Athens and Macon won't be up and running until 2005 at the earliest, a year behind schedule, rail planners said Friday. The $15.4 billion spending plan unveiled by the governor Thursday provides $1.4 million for planning and engineering work associated with the proposed lines. Mr. Barnes earmarked an equal amount in the 2001 midyear budget he submitted to lawmakers last week.
