ACCG Legislative Service AwardATLANTA (November 9, 2015)  |  On November 5, 2015, Senator Bruce Thompson (R – White), received a Legislative Service Award from the Association County Commissioners of Georgia (ACCG).

“I want to thank all of the talented individuals who work so hard on behalf of our counties and county governments,” said Senator Thompson. “I am honored to receive this award as part of the common sense effort to make Georgia’s tax code less complicated.”

ACCG honored Senator Thompson for the improvements to the property tax appeals process that will benefit local taxpayers that came through legislation he carried in the Senate. The legislation also made several changes that improve the administration and collection of property taxes.

“ACCG has worked with the legislature for the past three years to make changes to the laws regarding our state’s property tax system,” said ACCG Legislative Director Clint Mueller. “We are thankful to those who have worked with county elected officials to ensure this reform was realized, especially to Sen. Thompson for his work on this legislation in the State Senate.”

Formed in 1914, ACCG is a county association that works on behalf of county officials and their communities by providing public policy and legislative advocacy, leadership development, civic and community engagement initiatives, insurance and retirement programs that specialize in local government needs and other cost-saving programs.
