A state senator from Cumming recently participated in the American Legislative Exchange Council’s annual Spring Task Force Summit in Cincinnati.

The event brought together hundreds of legislators and policy leaders from across the country to discuss issues ranging from education and health care to fiscal responsibility.

Jack Murphy, a Republican who represents District 27, offered suggestions to assist colleagues in other states. He also returned with information that could help Georgia become a more economically stable and successful state.

“Georgia faces similar economic issues as other states in terms of commerce, health care, business growth and crippled state budgets,” Murphy said.

“It’s my duty as an elected official to have the most current information and best choices possible when making policy decisions to help Georgia succeed out of this recession.”

The exchange council meetings are designed for legislators to share suggestions and solutions. 

In addition, legislative leaders from the states can propose policies for the council to adopt as a national organization.
