Governor Brian Kemp released the following statement:
“Thanks to our responsible approach to budgeting, we’re able to deliver relief to families fighting through the disastrous effects of Bidenomics.
I’m proud this action has helped keep millions of dollars in hardworking Georgians’ pockets and look forward to continuing to see that impact with the Thanksgiving holiday approaching.
I’m also grateful for the partnership of the General Assembly as it prepares to enter a special session where legislators will be called on to ratify this measure.”
