Our Vision


he Georgia Budget and Policy Institute is working to advance lasting solutions that expand economic opportunity and well-being for all Georgians. We believe Georgia can be a state where everyone has a chance at a decent job so they can raise a family, can go to a doctor when they get sick and attend great public schools. We offer thoughtful analysis and responsible solutions to improve the state’s budget, taxes and public policies. We are working to help Georgians reach their full potential.
