10:00am House Session
10:00am Senate Session
State lawmakers spent the week squabbling over whether a proposed tax plan would give every Georgian a tax break. Democrats have argued with Republicans, and House leaders have argued with those in the Senate. And no one has paid much attention to whether the tax plan would increase state revenues.
State lawmakers will jump into spring break a day earlier than originally planned, with no General Assembly session Friday. That move is to give legislators more time to iron-out sticking points in a proposed tax reform plan.
State lawmakers are at an impasse over a tax reform plan. And they have decided to take another week to resolve their differences. They will reconvene after Spring break and take up the issue again, in an attempt to break the impasse.
The Georgia Music Hall of Fame Authority Board today/Thursday rejected all four cities wanting to host the museum. But, the door remains open for the City of Macon. After the state put the museum up for bid, Athens, Dunwoody, Macon and Woodstock submitted plans. The board didn’t like any of them.
State lawmakers were unable to come to an agreement Wednesday evening on a tax reform plan, so work will continue Thursday. A Republican-proposed measure would cut the state income tax from 6 to 4.5 percent. But it would add taxes on auto repair, car sales between individuals and some telecommunication services.
