ATLANTA — District 168 state Rep. Al Williams, D-Midway, has been appointed by Georgia House Speaker David Ralston, R-Blue Ridge, as a member of the Joint Study Committee on Property Tax Digest Impact on Education Funding.
“I appreciate Speaker Ralston and leadership for appointing me to this significant committee,” Williams said. “I look forward to seeing what we can do that would be in the best interest for all of Georgia.”
The committee, created by Senate Resolution 875, is charged with studying the reporting of local tax revenues that impact the funding received by local school systems, specifically equalization and five mill shares. Issues to be addressed include tax-digest reporting, economic development-related revenues paid “in lieu” of taxes and any other arrangements that impact a local tax digest, including abatements.
The 10-member study committee will work in the interim leading up to the 2015 legislative session. Meetings will be called and scheduled by committee co-chairs Rep. David Knight, R-Griffin, and Sen. Jack Hill, R-Reidville.
