Thank you for visiting SteveHenson.net. It is an honor to represent you, the people of the 41st District, in the Georgia Senate, and I appreciate your support and feedback throughout the year. Please feel free to contact me with your views on the issues facing DeKalb or Gwinnett County and the state of Georgia, or whenever I can be of service.
Last year, I was honored to have been elected unanimously as Senate Minority Leader by my fellow members of the Senate Democratic Caucus. I take the responsibilities of this leadership position very seriously and can assure you that Senate Democrats will continue to fight the good fight for the people of Georgia on all legislative issues.
Having failed to agree on legislation that would have dramatically changed Georgia's tax code last year, the Republican majority leadership is expected to try again during the 2012 session of the Georgia General Assembly. Proposed changes include large tax breaks for corporations and tax increases on Georgia families in the form of reinstating the 4 percent state sales tax on food. Taxes will be a hotly debated issue again this year.
