First Staton, Now Keown

Some legislators just aren’t happy about the session.

State Rep. Mike Keown gave the legislative session that ended April 4 a grade of “C,” noting that much of lawmakers’ time was spent trying to keep pace with ever-changing tax proposals.

The result, said Keown, R-Coolidge, was that no tax relief was passed during the Georgia General Assembly’s 40-day session. Keown, who represents part of Grady and Thomas counties, spoke Tuesday at the Thomas County Republican Party’s monthly meeting at The Plaza Restaurant.

They have only their leadership to blame.

    Is that a state rep taking a dig at the Speaker I hear?

    Maybe this is a little naive, but why weren’t these legislators, that are blasting the session now, doing something about it while they were in session??

    All of them are part of the problem since they just sit there and let the LG and the Speaker make a joke out of the session.

    Not what I’d call an average session. Grade inflation is seemingly pervasive throughout the state.

    Hey, that’s passing!

    What position does the General Assembly play and has Scout.com given it any stars?
