ATLANTA – This week’s budget hearings confirmed Georgians’ worst fears as state agency heads finally shared details of how Brian Kemp’s extreme, “life-robbing” budget will impact Georgians. From Nathan Deal’s criminal justice reforms to crucial programs for rural health care, no program was spared – and Georgians will be paying the price for years to come.
DPG Chairwoman Nikema Williams said:
“Brian Kemp has always made it clear that he’ll put his extreme agenda over the lives of Georgians, and his budget proposal is a cruel display of that truth. Make no mistake: Georgians will feel the devastating cost of this budget, whether it’s more rural hospitals closing or lives lost due to lack of necessary medical care. Democrats will keep fighting tooth and nail to protect the essential services that Georgians need – because we know our future depends on it.”
