ATLANTA (April 30, 2010) – Now that we’ve reached the end of what has been one of the longest sessions in Georgia’s history, it’s time to move forward on new policies that will change the face of our state economy. Job creation is at the center of this transformation. At the beginning of session, I noted that while the legislature’s greatest challenge would be balancing the budget, our most important goal was to revitalize Georgia’s job sector. I’m proud to say that job growth remained our primary focus throughout session, with both chambers passing legislation to encourage an economic climate that is conducive to job creation.
