Making a Difference for Tax Relief
Rep. Beskin sponsored and passed the Atlanta Tax Relief Bill, HB 820, freezing assessments on property taxes. Effectively capping annual assessment increases to 2.6% will help Atlanta homeowners save money and stay in their homes. Rep. Beskin also voted for Georgia’s first income tax cut since 1939, which will cut the top state income tax rate from 6.0 percent to 5.5 percent and double the standard deduction for Georgians.
Making a Difference for Education
Fully Funding Quality Basic Education (QBE)
As a member of the House Education Committee, Rep. Beskin supported legislation to ensure our state fully funds K-12 education for the first time since it was implemented in 1984. The full funding of QBE provides additional funds for our K-12 programs.
Making a Difference for New Transit
Rep. Beskin has been a vocal leader in passing legislation to build and operate new rail and bus systems across the Atlanta region. If approved by voters, the referendum will create the Atlanta-region Transit Link “ATL” to improve traffic congestion.
