It has been my honor, an awesome responsibility, and fun too to represent you in the Georgia House. I ask for your continued support and vote on Tuesday, November 6 to remain your state Representative.

Now is not the time for dramatic change in Georgia’s leadership. Among our recent successes:

  • HB 918 cuts Georgia personal income tax rates for the first time since 1937. Twice before I had introduced legislation to cut the marginal rates and I am gratified that Georgia families will be able to keep more of their hard-earned income. The top marginal state income tax rate drops to 5.75% in 2019 and 5.5% in 2020. HB 918 also doubles the standard deduction for all taxpayers.
  •  HB 684 the FY 2019 budget fully funds K-12 Quality Basic Education (QBE) formula for the first time supplying millions in additional dollars for Gwinnett public schools.
  • HB 159 updates Georgia’s adoption code for the first time in 30 years making adoptions quicker and at lower cost to aid the permanent placement of over 12,000 foster children in loving homes. [HB 159 in no way harms faith-based adoptions.]
  • HB 673 seeks to reduce distracted driving and save lives by prohibiting the use of hand-held devices while operating a vehicle.
  • HR 993 calls for a Constitutional Amendment to create statewide business courts to improve service to our state’s economic engines – Georgia’s vibrant business and employment economy.
  • HB 65 added chronic pain and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder to qualifying conditions for medical cannabis or Low THC oil treatment.
  • SB 402 establishes the framework that may result in future deployment of broadband infrastructure in rural Georgia.
  • HR 1374 establishes a study committee on professional licensure.
  • HB 419 expands local governments regulatory authority over fireworks.
  • SB 17 the “Better Brunch Bill” permits communities to expand hours of Sunday sales for on-premise consumption by referendum.
  • SB 376 provides “free” consumer credit freezes responding to the growing problem of “hacked” data and identity theft.

These are but a few of the highlights. A number of other significant pieces of legislation passed including HB 930 creating a new transportation / transit framework.

We are enjoying historic low unemployment in Georgia and historic high graduation rates, let’s keep moving forward.
