House Special Committee on Economic Growth to Hold Next Meeting in Valdosta
The House Special Committee on Economic Growth, co-chaired by State Representatives Brett Harrell (R-Snellville), Alan Powell (R-Hartwell), and Ron Stephens (R-Savannah) will hold its next meeting on Tuesday, November 19, 2019, at 10:30 a.m. at the James H. Rainwater Conference Center in Valdosta. The meeting will be open to the public and media.
“Hosting the House Special Committee on Economic Growth will give us the opportunity to talk about the potential for economic development in our community. State Representatives will discuss destination resorts, which could mean increased tourism, revenue, and higher paying jobs for our area,” said Valdosta Mayor John Gayle.
The Special Committee on Economic Growth will look at industries which may wish to enter the State of Georgia and would require legislation creating a new regulatory framework. State revenue collected from such new industries could be used to fund specific programs like education, healthcare or infrastructure needs.
