F.Y.I.—On Saturday January 25 there will be a town hall meeting by Georgia State Representative Rich Golick at the Smyrna Public Library which will start at 10:00AM. He is having the meeting to get feedback from his constituents.
He has pointed out four main issues that are in the forefront of the upcoming State Assembly session and he especially wants some input on these issues.
ISSUE #1—Balanced Budget Amendment to the U.S. Constitution– There is a national movement to have a Constitutional Convention to pass an amendment for mandating that the Federal government must have a balanced budget. There are already twenty states that have already acted on this issue and Georgia is working on being state number twenty-one. The State Senate has already acted on this but the House has not. Rep. Rich Golick will be taking SR 371/SB 206 to the House in the effort getting the Constitutional Convention request passed by the Georgia Assembly.
ISSUE #2— Fractional SPLOST—Presently all SPLOST (Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax) is passed with a minimum amounts of one cent sales tax. This bill would allow local voter districts to pass SPLOST taxes for less than one cent. The voters will still have to vote to pass any SPLOST taxes but they would then be able to pass taxes for less than one cent. This can be a good thing because presently these taxes have to be at least one cent regardless and if the project costs less than what one cent collects then the government will have a “profit” to take to the bank.
Issue #3— Cobb County Development Authority Reform – This is a new legislation that would require elected County Commission members to act on any recommendation coming from the appointed development authority to grant any special tax treatment for any development.
Issue #4— Transportation issues from the new Braves Stadium — This discussion is to define steps to alleviate the upcoming traffic congestion from the stadium on the surrounding area.
Representative Rich Golick is welcoming any feedback that we are willing to give him. If you are available on that day I would highly recommend you attend the meeting. The meeting is primarily for his constituents but it is an open meeting and I’m sure he would welcome any constructive input regardless of the source. So if you happen to be in the neighborhood drop in and visit with some Georgia House District 40 citizens and take the chance to tell a State Representative how you feel about things.
