Report From The Capitol

REPORT FROM THE CAPITOL (5/15/2022)

Tax Refund What a beautiful morning in North Georgia! Just had to say that, as we are very fortunate to live in a place as beautiful as this. Yesterday I was in town and was asked by a lady about her family’s Georgia Tax Refund. I have had a few of these questions, so I thought I would...


REPORT FROM THE CAPITOL (4/25/2022)

In the last few weeks after the legislative session ends, I'm always surprised how busy we are. Besides trying to catch up on emails and calls we may have missed during the busy last two to three weeks of session, we have bill signings with the Governor that go on across Georgia. Also, people want t...


REPORT FROM THE CAPITOL (4/4/2022)

The last full week of the legislative session was this past week and was it a doozy! By "doozy" I mean a lot of long days and discussions on bills that have come over from the Senate and that we have amended... (they don't like that) and getting the bills we have passed out of the Senate committee a...


REPORT FROM THE CAPITOL (3/28/2022)

As I type this, we have about eight days left in this year's session. This is when there are long days and into the evening, trying to come to agreements with our bills and Senate bills and vice versa. It is good we have them check our bills, and we theirs; we find unintended consequences in the bil...


REPORT FROM THE CAPITOL (3/21/2022)

Well, we are past day 28 of 40, which was our Crossover Day. It is the last day a House bill can be sent to the Senate for their scrutiny and the same for them to the House. It was a long day in the House chambers voting on many different items that fellow legislators had brought before us. I presen...


REPORT FROM THE CAPITOL (3/14/2022)

This was a long week at your State Capitol for committee meetings and voting on the floor, as we get ready for Crossover Day on Tuesday the 15th. Crossover Day is the day in which a bill has to pass the House to be reviewed by the Senate. We try our best to get the bills our members want to get thr...


REPORT FROM THE CAPITOL (3/7/2022)
TAX CUTS for You
We have had busy days at the Capitol this past week and will for the next two. Every representative is trying to get their bills heard on the floor so the bills can move to the Senate for their consideration. A lot of our time is spent reading over other representatives' bills and making suggestions...


REPORT FROM THE CAPITOL (2/28/2022)

During this seventh week of the 2022 legislative session, we saw a lot of action in committees and voting on legislation to send to the Senate for their consideration. I always try to give you some insight on what is going on under the Gold Dome each week. As we approach what we call Crossover Day i...


REPORT FROM THE CAPITOL (2/14/2022)

We are in the fifth week of the 2022 legislative session. Each session meeting this week was longer as more legislation made its way to the House floor, including the bill for the Amended Fiscal Year (AFY) 2022 budget. To some, budget work is boring, but you can't believe the amount of work that goe...


REPORT FROM THE CAPITOL (2/7/2022)

I am glad I live where we do. We were not in session on Friday, and Marcia and I had errands and folks to see for business all around town. I was blown away by the friendliness of folks, saying, "Hi," and asking how things were going, filling me in on what was going on that I may not know about. Whe...
