In what has to be graphically the best looking plan to come out of any politician in this state in quite a while, Brian Kemp is releasing a plan today outlining what he’d do as Agriculture Commissioner. Kemp is proposing the overhauling of departments, expanding research, doing a better job at promoting Georgia grown products, and, most significantly, backing a huge overhaul of property taxation on agriculture land.
Kemp says he wants to cap increases in assessments to inflation and require valuation at current use rather than “highest and best use.” It looks like Kemp just might be willing to run on a really substantive game plan.
With all the bickering back and forth on this site between Kemp partisans and Black partisans, it will be nice to see a debate on agenda specifics and not on whether one is more Republican than the other. This might be the first step.
