The Georgia General Assembly kicks off this year’s legislative session Monday at the “Gold Dome” in Atlanta.
State Rep. Josh Bonner, R-Peachtree City, who represents the southeast quadrant of Coweta, will be starting his second year in the legislature. He was elected in 2016 to replace Matt Ramsey, R-Peachtree City, who decided not to seek reelection.
“There are a lot of good quality careers that provide a solid income and that they can be doing within a relatively short amount of time,” Bonner said. With a technical college education, “they’re not having any debt going into a job that pays anywhere from $50,000 to $80,000 a year,” he said.
The Georgia Film Academy in Fayette has a two-year program and graduates can get jobs making $80,000, Bonner said.
“We’ve got to increase the availability of that information to our students, to their parents and these other industries,” Bonner said.
