Hide your wallets, the Georgia House is about to vote on the Supplemental Budget. It hit house member’s desks this afternoon. Its an incomprehensible mess so in the brief view I got (
they don’t release it to us peons link) I couldn’t tell how much more they intended to spend.
A new bill was dropped today, HR1216, which would limit how the budget could be amended. This bill would only allow the General Assembly to spend extra tax revenue on two things: education or funding the shortfall reserve. After that the money is returned to the taxpayers.
Finally, Senator Shafer had an excellent speech regarding the joint resolution on the northern Georgia border.
As soon as I can find the video on line I’ll post it.
