Republican and Democratic state senators unveiled their legislative agendas this week and at first glance, there are many similarities. But the two sides have very different ideas about how government should help Georgians prosper.
About a fifth of Georgia's state lawmakers have failed to pay their taxes on time.

A lien allows government officials to seize a person's property and sell it to recoup a tax debt.
