Georgia Politics, Campaigns & Elections for March 18, 2013

Ethics Bills in Senate

At 9 AM Tuesday, March 19th in Room 450 of the Capitol, a Senate Rules Committee Subcommitee will hold a hearing only on House Bill 142 and HB 143 by Speaker David Ralston.

Members of the Rules Subcommittee include Senators Gloria Butler, Steve Gooch, Bill Jackson, Fran Millar, Jack Murphy, Cecil Staton and Chairman Jeff Mullis.

Cherokee Nation

Cherokee County is the center of the universe in Georgia Republican politics this week.

Barry Loudermilk (1)This weekend, state Senator Barry Loudermilk (R-Cassville) told a Republican meeting in Cherokee County that while he will not make an announcement until after Congressman Phil Gingrey announces whether he’s running for United States Senate next year, he intends to run for the 11th District if Gingrey is not seeking reelection.

Add to that Bob Barr’s similar non-announcement preannouncement, and we’ve got politicians stacked up and waiting for word from Rep. Gingrey.

Governor Deal: State Farm Insurance to locate 500 jobs in Atlanta

From the press release:

Gov. Nathan Deal today announced that the state’s largest insurance company, State Farm Insurance, is bringing 500 new jobs to Georgia. The new jobs will be located at the recently leased Atlanta Perimeter Operations Center located near Perimeter Mall.

“State Farm’s decision to locate their new facility here makes a compelling statement about our state’s competitive business environment,” said Deal. “In Georgia, State Farm will find a progressive business infrastructure, along with a highly skilled workforce, that will allow for continued success when it comes to providing the highest levels of customer service to their policyholders.”

The office is expected to open for business later this year. While some existing State Farm employees will work at the new facility – it will be staffed by predominantly new hires. The new facility will help the company provide sales, service and claims capabilities to better serve their customers.

State Farm Senior Vice President Tim McFadden said, “This expansion is just another way State Farm continues to adjust to meet the changing needs and preferences of our customers. We will continue to make business decisions focused on how we can best serve our customers.”
