A Georgia travel agency has a list of “toxic” places in the state, including several areas with high rates of traffic fatalities, a group of Georgia state lawmakers said Wednesday.
The Travel Advisory Board of Georgia is expected to discuss a list that includes five high-risk locations, according to the Georgia Travel Council.
The advisory board includes the heads of the state’s tourism and economic development agencies.
The list is due out Thursday, the council said.
Georgia lawmakers have been pushing the state for years to take a more aggressive stance on tourism and other industries in the wake of the Great Recession.
Some states have moved ahead, but others have struggled to close the gap.
The state’s travel advisory committee, which meets regularly, is expected next week to recommend a new law that would require hotels to post information on their websites about the risks of alcohol and other substances.
