2/1/2020 Press Release: Rep. Jeff Jones Introduces Hailie’s Amendment to Amend Legislative Leave Law; Speaker Ralston Refuses to Give the Bill a Hearing
Crime / Law Enforcement
We must support law enforcement; $100 million could be raised by my wire-transfer bill and should be used for local law enforcement pay increases.
FairTax / Tax Reform
Jeff strongly believes that our present federal income tax system penalizes the productivity and hard work of Georgians and all Americans. Jeff believes strongly in the abolishment of the IRS and replacing the current tax code with the FairTax. He is a proponent of tax simplification on all levels.
Guns / 2nd Amendment
Jeff is a strong supporter of the NRA, Georgia Carry, and other groups promoting the constitutional right to bear arms. Jeff believes that “gun-free zones” particularly in our schools, make the students and faculty easy targets for those who intend to do them harm.
The process of “zero-based budgeting” must continue, as we work to streamline our state government.
Homeland security begins with border control. Georgia must stop issuing driver’s licenses to those in our state without lawful status.
Jeff believes that the role of government in business should be to create an environment that encourages entrepreneurship and business growth by reducing or eliminating obstacles and expensive, burdensome regulations. Jeff’s many years of business experience, both at the corporate level and as a small-business owner, puts him in a unique position to help Southeast Georgians, and the local economy in general, grow and prosper.
Jeff is a strong proponent of the sanctity of life and believes that life begins at the moment of conception.
Rights of Individuals, Local and State Governments
Jeff believes that state government should respect the rights of local governments by not usurping local government authority, and he believes that the Federal government has exceeded its Constitutional authority by forcing laws and regulation upon the states and individuals.
