Summary The Chronicle reports that officials who are supposed to approve or reject the construction of a proposed $2.2 billion highway north of Atlanta, own significant tracts of land close to it. The road would potentially increase the value of their land. One of the officials, Richard Chandler, resigned from the Atlanta Regional Commission Board after the publications, later followed by another three officials, including William Hasty, head of the state department of transportation.
