Concept of GMO foods ok, but look at pros & cons
Q: Would you support genetically modified foods (GMO) labeling in Georgia?
A: I would have to look at the pros and cons.
I am not opposed to the concept and would have to look at what the impact would be.

Educate residents about water conservation
In my view, the bedrock of any water strategy must be an increase in conservation and reduction in demand. Georgians responded admirably to the recent droughts, but we must do more and make the improvements permanent.

We must educate our residents about water conservation and incentivize use of water-saving appliances, and other residential and commercial products and procedures that reduce the consumptive use of water.
We should also incentivize the use of water-saving technology and design in any new construction, to ensure that our built environment maximizes our water saving capabilities and minimizes consumptive uses of water. For example, we must encourage the
practice of capturing rainwater and managing run-off on residential and commercial buildings
- Our public infrastructure must do a better job of reclaiming and recycling water.
