Senator Judson Hill:
State revenues are showing signs of improvement. During Governor Deal’s recent “State of the State” address, he proposed a $20.8 billion budget for FY2015, which includes a large funding increase for K-12 and higher education initiatives. Georgia is home to nearly 90 accredited colleges, universities and technical schools who graduate a combined total of 50,000 students annually. Providing funding for Georgia’s educational programs is paramount to making our state an attractive destination for business and ensuring a talented, highly-skilled workforce.
The State of Georgia is home to hundreds of thousands of businesses who keep our local communities well and thriving. This remarkable trend in economic growth is the direct result of our state’s ongoing commitment to drive innovation, reduce business costs and cultivate an environment right for economic success. As a result of these pro-business policies, Georgia has added approximately 217,000 new jobs over the past three years. Another positive indicator of our state’s business climate is our unemployment rate, which has continued to decline steadily since the height of the recession.
