House passes beefed-up mid-year budget with a $1B property tax break

Georgia’s budget spends nearly $3,000 per person on everything from road infrastructure and K-12 education to agricultural inspectors and health care, and much of the increased funding is directed toward one-time expenses such as new battery backups for the state’s voting machines, increased benefits for retirees and upgrading safety for domestic violence shelters.
