Sen. Butterworth Earns Georgia Chamber Honor Roll

CLARKESVILLE (Sept. 30, 2010) – Sen. Jim Butterworth (R-Clarkesville) recently achieved placement on the Georgia Chamber of Commerce Honor Roll, which recognizes legislators that were most supportive of the business community during the 2010 Legislative Session.

“It is small businesses that are the key to making Georgia an economic center for growth and prosperity,” said Butterworth. “I will continue working with my colleagues in the Senate to reduce regulation and taxation, while also promoting the common sense free-market principles that are vital to our economic success.”

Legislators focused on the issues most important to Georgia business and passed bills in the areas of transportation, health care, water, tax and education that will benefit our state for years to come.  Despite the challenging state budget, legislators worked to cultivate an environment for growth by reducing taxes and promoting investment in businesses throughout Georgia.
