Rogers: Delivering on Promises to Homeowners
ATLANTA (February 17, 2009) – Senate Majority Leader Chip Rogers (R-Woodstock) released the following statement today regarding Governor Perdue signing H.B. 143 into law. This ensures over three million homeowners that funding for the 2009 Homeowners Tax Relief Grant (HTRG) will be maintained in this year’s budget:
“While Washington D.C. places almost a trillion dollars in debt on the American people, we in Georgia are delivering real tax relief to homeowners. The legislature declared that funding the Homeowners Tax Relief Grant was our top legislative priority. Today with the cooperation of the Governor, the Senate, and the House, we have reached an agreement to deliver on this promise to taxpayers. This is good day for homeowners in Georgia.”
HB 143 will honor the $428 million HTRG the General Assembly placed in the 2009 budget and adjusts the manner and method for appropriating any grants in future years.
