The JOBS Act, sponsored by Tom Graves, has just passed the Senate and is on its way to the Governor’s desk. Details to follow later as we are all busy with our everyday “work” lives. Peach Pundit apologizes for not keeping up with demand…but not really.
Update: The AJC reports that earlier today the Senate tried to attach the Hospital Bed Tax to the bill, but failed.
A substitute bill authored by the Senate Finance committee, that included the 1.45 percent tax on patient revenue, was soundly rejected 28-5 by the senate.
The original JOBS Act (HB 1023) passed 33-13.
