MACON, Ga. (AP) - The Georgia Chamber is planning to honor Republican U.S. Sen. Saxby Chambliss at its annual Congressional Luncheon in Macon.
Organizers say the Aug. 19 event is being hosted at the Macon Marriott Centreplex and Chambliss is being honored for his contributions to the state and for his career in public service.
Chambliss, a Republican from Moultire, last year announced plans to retire from the U.S. Senate after his current term.
