State Rep. Lynn Smith (R-Coweta) was recognized on Tuesday, Sept. 23, by the Georgia Chamber of Commerce for her strong support of business issues and her hard work on the statewide water plan. The presentation took place at the Newnan-Coweta Early Bird Forum at the Central Educational Center in Newnan with more than 100 business leaders in attendance.

"I applaud her for her efforts in helping Georgia become one of the most business-friendly states in the nation," he said.
