ATLANTA (AP) – A state lawmaker says a University System of Georgia proposal would merge eight college campuses across the state into four to save money.

Rep. Mark Hatfield, a Republican from Waycross, says the proposed consolidations involve merging Waycross College with South Georgia College in Douglas; Augusta State College with the Georgia Health Sciences University; Middle Georgia College with Macon State College; and Gainesville College with North Georgia College & State University.

He says he met with Chancellor Henry “Hank” Huckaby and Board of Regents chairman Ben Tarbutton on Wednesday.

Huckaby is expected to make an official announcement Friday.
