Regarding TIGER county connectivity; since the last OSMI update GA, AL and
northern MS have had county boundary issues cleaned.

What's left is KY, LA, AR, southeastern TX, and portions of VA, TN, and KS.
 States such as ME and southeastern MA also have scattered boundaries that
have not been addressed, but the first four states listed here now comprise
the bulk of the outstanding county boundary issues.

Best,
