Lawmakers could be in a better position to scrutinize tax breaks in Georgia under a plan advancing in the state Senate. The Senate Finance Committee on Monday voted unanimously to pass Senate Bill 302. It would let lawmakers request analyses of up to 10 tax breaks each year.

The bill moves to the full Senate for more debate. The review would capture both how much revenue the state is giving up as well as how much economic activity a tax break might be supporting. The subject has new relevance this year with lagging revenues and highly critical audits of Georgia's film tax credit.
