- Establish the toughest ethics standard in State Government.
- Begin working to expose Georgia's hidden insurance tax, which is the 2nd highest in the nation. There should NEVER be any tax or fee hidden from the taxpayers. My goal is to eventually eliminate this tax, but we must first print it on every policy statement for Georgia customers to see.
- Appoint businesspeople to lead several task force groups to study the outdated Georgia insurance code, make recommendations on streamlining insurance department functions, and bring more competition to Georgia.
