2019 Legislative Policy Forum Aims to Mobilize Georgia

Since 2010, the Georgia Public Policy Foundation has invited some of the nation’s brightest and best experts to Atlanta to share forward-thinking proposals on ways for Georgia’s legislators and policymakers to tackle challenges the state faces, using practical, limited-government, state-specific approaches.

Through the years, the Foundation’s annual Georgia Legislative Policy Forum has targeted issues as diverse – and sometimes interwoven – as criminal justice, education, healthcare, poverty, privatization, transportation, taxes and the tri-state water wars. Each forum plays on Georgia’s motto of “Wisdom, Justice, Moderation,” and this year is no exception. The theme for the 2019 forum, on November 15 at the Renaissance Atlanta Waverly, is “Wisdom, Justice, Mobility.”
