The 2008 Legislative Session may be one of the most challenging in Georgia's history. The state faces decisions on water, taxes, transportation, education and healthcare. If there are falling state revenues, the Legislature must make some critical decisions. As one of the most powerful politicians in the state, Richardson gives an overview of the session, which includes his controversial property tax proposal and his ideas for the future of Grady Hospital. Richardson, who is a Republican from Hiram, graduated with degrees in political science and law from Georgia State University.
