Senate works on tax reform

Day 34 (Monday, April 12): This is the sixth year that I have had the honor and privilege of serving in the Georgia State Legislature and one of the things that I am most proud of is how we begin each session in the House and Senate with the Pledge of Allegiance, a short devotion led by our "Pastor of the Day," and a prayer. Today is a special day for me as I have my pastor from Wesley Monumental United Methodist Church in Savannah, Rev. Creede Hinshaw as our "Pastor of the Day." As usual, Creede does a wonderful ...

House passes FY 2011 budget

Returning from our recess, the General Assembly was refreshed and ready to get back to doing the people's work. It has been a longer legislative session in comparison to the past few years; however, the end is in sight. With only four legislative session days left, the General Assembly confirmed that our last day of the 2010 Legislative Session will be Thursday, April 29. One of the most complex budget years in the history of the state, we have made necessary, but difficult, choices as we reduced spending and therefore the size of our government. When the economy does ...

Offshore drilling will benefit pocketbooks

Georgians applaud President Obama's decision to allow offshore drilling along the mid-Atlantic coast. With the state unemployment rate at 10.6 percent, we understand that tapping into U.S. oil and natural gas resources offshore would create hundreds of thousands of new, well-paying jobs, boost the state and local economies, and help secure our energy future. We also know many factors play a role in whether or not development will ever occur. If the president has our best interest in mind, he needs to act quickly and prudently on his words.

Earth Day: Mother Earth, the water planet

Mother Earth is a water planet. Being 'green' should include consciousness about our oceans, rivers, estuaries. It is the ocean that regulates everything on our planet, including the air we breathe. Can't relate to the global picture? Let's start with our own backyard…our marshes, rivers, creeks. Trash inland ends up in our rivers – flowing out to our islands and sounds. We need to keep our water clean – void of all pollutants. Wastewater treatment plants, no matter how state-of-the art, cannot eliminate pharmaceuticals prior to dumping their effluents. Government and private entities in this state care little about ...
