The Fulton commission has given marching orders to its lobbyists working at the state Capitol, and the team will again ask lawmakers to "aggressively oppose" any bill allowing the breakaway of Milton County. The county budgeted $677,600 for its intergovernmental affairs office this year, which includes payments to lobbyists.

Other lobbying efforts: oppose limiting the county government's powers, oppose delaying delinquent tax collections, support giving Local Option Sales Tax proceeds to unincorporated south Fulton and support finding more funds for Grady Memorial Hospital and MARTA.
