Senate Passes Bill To Examine Georgia Tax Breaks
ATLANTA (AP) — Georgia's state senators want to take a closer look at tax breaks. Senators voted 54-0 on Monday to pass Senate Bill 302, sending it to the House for more debate. The measure would let lawmakers request analyses of up to 10 tax breaks each year. The reviews would examine how much revenue the state is giving up as well as how much economic activity a tax break might be supporting. Gov. Brian Kemp vetoed a similar tax credit review bill last year, saying examinations should be done by an outside auditor. This year's bill was amended to require the outside look.
