Kirby and England

State Reps. Tom Kirby of Loganville and Terry England of Auburn shake hands Thursday, Feb. 17, 2022, at the state Capitol in Atlanta. England had announced he would not seek reelection. Kirby previously announced the same.

The House of Representatives returned for the sixth week of the 2022 legislative session on Monday, Feb. 14.

From economic development to protecting our natural environment, my colleagues and I mulled over dozens of bills that would address a wide range of policy issues both on the House floor and with our committees this week.

There are already laws that allow for the creation of regional development "authorities" so I'm not sure where this politician has been. And the laws currently enacted remove all accountability and transparency. I live in one county, yet have politicians from 3 other counties making decisions about land 3 miles from my house, and I have no recourse at the ballot box. True conservative government emphasizes home rule, not organizing a "collective government". You know what that sounds like.
