According to Crossing Georgia:
On Monday night, 11/20/06, the Montgomery County delegation to the state legislature held a Joint Senate-House Priorities hearing. Anyone in the county was eligible to testify at the hearing about any issue they wanted the legislators to address in the 2007 session. Over a hundred people testified about issues as diverse as the ICC (both supporters and opponents), the Purple Line, the Corridor Cities transitway, laws to prohibit discrimination against transgender individuals, the death penalty and more.Tunnel supporters have consistently built support for their cause for some time. They have support from local legislators. They even have a photo on the website with three District 18 legislators (Senator-Elect Rich Madaleno, Del. Ana Sol Gutierrez, and Del. Jane Lawton) to prove it.
However, no organization sent more individuals to testify than Forest Estates. And no single issue had more speakers than the need to build a new Forest Glen Metro entrance on the eastern side of Georgia Avenue.
