I guess in an order to fund the Georgia Arts Council  the Senate decided to scrap the Governor’s Honor Program. 

What is GHP?

The Governor’s Honors Program is a six-week summer instructional program designed to provide intellectually gifted and artistically talented high school students challenging and enriching educational opportunities not usually available during the regular school year. Activities are designed to provide each participant with opportunities to acquire the skills, knowledge and attitudes to become independent, life-long learners.

The Governor and House of Representatives planned to cut the program back to only four weeks instead of six, but the Senate decided that we could just live without it.  

Is there any education program that these guys find valuable?
