"This week, the Senate took up a total of 25 bills, one of which is the single most important bill we voted on this session. The Constitution of the United States lays out our rights and tells us that the right to life and property are protected. "
OPINION: "HB 276 that would assess an excessive tax on Georgians who use rideshare apps like Uber and Lyft. The amendment text hasn’t been published on the Georgia General Assembly webpage yet, but the release states that the proposal would levy “an 8.9% sales tax on rides in Atlanta and an average 7% sales tax on rides throughout the rest of Georgia.”
OPINION: " Most law officials oppose the growing of marijuana because they consider it an entry drug. Just about all of the heavy drug users started with marijuana. It is necessary to note that all marijuana users do not go on to be addicted to heavier drugs."
OPINION: "A measure that has already passed the Georgia House of Representatives would be tremendously detrimental to private property owners and those in the agriculture community if it clears the state senate as well. "
