About The Georgia Report
Rules for the Road
We have established a blog on The Georgia Report where readers are encouraged to post comments, if they are so inclined. We only ask that you follow these simple rules:
1. Do not post anything libelous.
2. Smack talkers and trollers not only will be unwelcome, they will be permanently banned.
3. Even when you disagree with someone, it’s still possible to maintain a minimal level of civility. Give it a try.
4. When all else fails, remember these words: Don’t be a jerk.
We thank you.
There is definitely no logic to human behavior.
The takeaways from this legislative session are that jobs are available if you know the right person, regulations are bad except when they're good, and raccoons in North Georgia better watch out . . .
Legislators set their ideologies aside to pass a bill raising money to repair the transportation infrastructure . . .
The Palmetto Pipeline is one of the largest infrastructure projects ever proposed for Georgia -- but you wouldn't know that from listening to politicians . . .
Democrats and Republicans appeared to have switched roles in this year's General Assembly session . . .
As in past years, important bills are held up until the dying hours of the session, then rammed through to passage by the governor and the legislative leadership . . .
The new law authorizing a state takeover of low-performing schools essentially makes the governor the state school superintendent . . .
Rep. David Stover has the courage to stand up to Georgia's powerful chief executive and call him out . . .
There was a time when legislators believed in the concept of "local control," but that time has long since passed . . .
Democrats only hold one-third of the seats in the House of Representatives, but they delivered enough votes to enable the transportation tax increase to pass . . .
