Georgia Governor Brian Kemp was inaugurated for a second term earlier today. Kemp says he plans to use some the state’s $6.6 billion surplus to give back to Georgians and fund priorities in the state. Kemp will distribute some of that surplus to taxpayers, with a $1 billion tax refund this year. In addition, homeowners will receive a $1.1 billion one-time property tax relief grant.
