Busbee Dies at 76

Preparations are underway to remember former Georgia governor George Busbee. He died on Friday while on vacation in Savannah. Busbee was at the Savannah-Hilton Head International Airport when he collapsed from an apparent heart attack Friday afternoon.

He served as Georgia's governor from 1975 through 1983, becoming the first governor in the state to serve two consecutive four-year terms.

Today, Busbee's body will lie in state at the state capitol building. A public memorial service will be held tomorrow in Atlanta.

George Busbee was 76 years old.
