GA Republican Legislators and Limited Government

Georgia's RSC, according to the news release from the Gold Dome, will evaluate legislation based on five criteria that, according to Rep. Charlice Byrd (R-Woodstock), will "promote conservative policy in the best interests of liberty and prosperity" for the people of the Peach State.

The group plans to score each bill on whether it:

  • Does the bill reduce taxes or fees?
  • Does the bill encourage personal responsibility by individuals and families and encourage them to provide for their own needs?
  • Does the bill increase opportunities for individuals or families to decide how to conduct their own lives and make personal choices?
  • Does the bill stay within the limits of the proper role of government?
