The AJC Editorial Board
The next 40 legislative days demand bold, broad thinking — about job creation, transportation, education and the tax code — to improve this state in times still best described as troubled.
Lawmakers filing into the Gold Dome on Monday will find before them once again a heavy punch list of important matters needing resolution.
Doing that well requires casting forth a forward-thinking vision for Georgia — and acting quickly on it. The opposite of that earnest work would be more of the half-hearted punting and gamesmanship designed to appease restive voters, not solve our biggest problems.
Let’s get beyond that in this bellwether year for Georgia and its capital city. We need bold, broad thinking as we endure a still-sluggish economy that’s long overdue for repair, rebuilding and rebirth. Read our view on the session and two others:
Alan Essig, executive director, Georgia Budget and Policy Institute, defines five categories that cry out for reform.
Kelly McCutchen, president of Georgia Public Policy Foundation suggests venturing into new territory.
