2015 Session Preview

Written by Senator John Albers

In the November 2014 elections, the people spoke and their voices could not be louder nor their words any clearer. They want positive and conservative solutions to issues arising here in Georgia and across the nation. This year, we welcome 10 new senators, each of whom I look forward to working with during the upcoming legislative session. On January 12, legislators will officially be sworn into office as the General Assembly marks the beginning of a new 40-day legislative term.

Let me begin by saying thank you to: God, my family, campaign team and supporters for another successful election.

Workfare vs. Welfare

Written by Senator John Albers

I believe it is time to usher in a new era of social responsibility and accountability by changing the way Georgians think about the function of government assistance.

Why Parades are Important

Written by Senator John Albers

I love parades. There is something nostalgic and satisfying about the entire process. Parades combine some of my favorite things: community, patriotism, family, faith and simply being involved. We have several great parades in our local area each year.

Fulfilling Your Civic Duty

Written by Senator John Albers

This November, Georgians have a chance to make their voices heard in a number of important elections that will define our state for years to come. With the Governor, Lieutenant Governor, Georgia State Senate and House of Representatives, and every constitutional officer up for election, it has never been more important for Georgians to get to their local polls to vote.

Supporting Our Local Law Enforcement

Written by Senator John Albers

As elected officials, our primary goal is to ensure the safety of our constituents, whether it is financial, legal or physical. I believe the best way to do this is by supporting local law enforcement. These brave individuals answer the call no matter the time of day or night, and we, as citizens, owe them our gratitude.

Paving the Way to Prosperity

Written by Senator John Albers

At the beginning of each year, the Republican Senate Caucus gathers to determine what our top priorities are for the upcoming legislative session. This year, our primary goal was to protect Georgians. We recognized the need to protect teachers’ ability to teach, the future of the disabled and our state’s small businesses. Throughout this session, we passed many bills that support the efforts we outlined and that will help many Georgians feel physically and financially safe and safe from an overreaching government.

MARTA Expansion North and the Red Herrings

Written by Senator John Albers

I am baffled and amazed at the lack of facts and logic used to support issues.  Often, issues are being justified by using a “red herring.” A red herring is something that misleads or distracts from a relevant or important issue.

Safety: Our First Priority

 

We are a nation of immigrants. A nation that was forged mostly by people fleeing Europe
and looking for a place they could live freely, with a government of people elected by
the people. We started with nothing but the ideals of the settlers who came here
centuries ago. Those ideals have turned our nation into the strongest, most prosperous
and most diverse in the world. Since then, people have continued to relocate their
families to our great land to pursue the American dream.

Countdown to Session

Happy New Year! This past year has been nothing short of exciting! During the 2015 legislative session, we passed several bills that have made an impact on citizens throughout Georgia, including Ava’s Law, Haleigh’s Hope Act and the Transportation Funding Act, just to name a few.

No Excuse: Veterans Have Earned a Hero’s Welcome and Service from the VA

Written by Senator John Albers

You cannot watch or read the news these days without hearing of a high-ranking federal scandal. Within a few months of each other, explosive headlines blew the lid off massive corruption taking place on the federal government's watch. From the breach in national security at our U.S. Embassy in Benghazi to the IRS' intentional targeting of conservative groups, the federal government continues to amass more power with little to no accountability.

The Peach State is ripe for Business

Written by Senator John Albers

When many people think of Georgia, they are reminded of the 1996 Olympic Games, the world's busiest airport, fresh-picked peaches, and warm summers with endless pitchers of sweet tea. In fact, you can't listen to the radio these days without hearing mention of the Peach State. Like an old, sweet song made famous by legendary recording artist Ray Charles, we all seem to have "Georgia on our Mind" — and businesses have taken notice.

2014 Legislative Session: Forging a Path to Prosperity

The Georgia General Assembly conducted efficient business at the Gold Dome this year, wrapping up the 2014 Legislative Session in mid-March. I am proud to highlight the following bills that passed during the 2014 session, many of which have already been signed into law by Governor Nathan Deal.

Gold Dome Update: Sine Die

A Look at 2014 Legislation

Written by Senator John Albers

The 2014 Legislative Session has flown by at a rapid pace. In the opening days of March, the Georgia General Assembly reached Day 30, otherwise known as “Crossover Day.” Procedurally, if a bill hasn’t passed through either the House or the Senate by Day 30, it must be re-introduced the following legislative year.
