The governor, by executive order, moved the committee that since 1994 has coordinated the state's efforts with the federal Base Realignment and Closure and has supported the state's military bases and local economies.
The committee as constituted under the Chamber's leadership will be made up of public and private sector leaders as well as military officials and will continue to seek ways to attract new economic development to military communities and build support for the bases. AARON GOULD SHEININ
Georgia's Office of Consumer Protection has reached a settlement with Wavee US over claims the company misled customers on its website, the agency's administrator, John Sours, said Friday.
Wavee conducted "penny auctions" on its web site, but failed to send a number of products to consumers in a timely manner and failed to clearly disclose purchase terms on its site, the consumer office said. Under the settlement, Wavee will cease operations, provide $202,210 in consumer restitution and pay $50,000 in civil penalties and administrative expenses. BILL RANKIN
