G-8 Summit Coming to Georgia?

Georgia's Sea Island is among a small group of US sites being considered by President Bush to host the G-8 world summit next year. That's the word from a senior official in Governor Sonny Perdue's office. Sea island is about 60 miles south of Savannah. It's near federal, military and law enforcement installations, making it ideal for handling security concerns.

The summit brings together leaders of eight different countries and draws thousands of journalists and government officials. It could have a huge economic impact up and down the Georgia and Florida coast.
