I oppose. If you do not support ObamaCare why would you give credibility by licensing the navigators.More regulation on private businesses. Most Ga. families are struggling to pay for childcare now. More regulations only increase the cost. It also gives parents a false since of security that the State is looking after them. Georgia has a terrible record of protecting the children in their custody now. i.e. DFACS and the Youth Development Centers. I oppose. The one thing the legislature is supposed to do is levy taxes. They should never pass this authority to an unelected board. Also when another board is raising the taxes it takes the pressure off to come up with a real solution to control the cost of Medicaid. I oppose. We have gone from 1st to 11th in worldwide freedom rankings because of things like taking our property rights away from us. One of the pillars of free market capitalism is protection of our property rights. I oppose. Government interjecting itself in private enterprise. If Beef producers want to market themselves they can voluntarily start their own CO-OP.

This appears to be a part of obamacare. This is regulation of child care facilities. For the safety of our children , I support background checks for those who work there. I am concerned when regulations reach into the private sector and believe that private business could do a better job of certifying these facilities.It appears to be a fee or tax on medical facilities to gain federal matching funds. This is the horrid "Bed Tax." This serves to increase our medical costs just so we can receive matching federal funds.This reduces the harvest time and requires ginseng to be repopulated. Sounds like a decent idea on the surface but it steps into what a person can or cannot harvest from their own private property. Next thing you know we will regulate when I can grow green beans and corn.This creates a separate commission for beef. We do not need this added bureaucracy.

No Republican should be voting to support any part of Obamacare, and “licensing” the Navigator of the PPACA supports Obamacare. In fact, a Republican should being trying to let Obamacare die altogether, not support it.No state legislation should be dictating what is taught at a school, and should remain a local matter, especially in regards to “authorize the department to administer certain programs,” makes it too far ranging.We should not be taxing providers to utilize hospitals in order to obtain federal financing. Providers are already too heavily regulated and taxed and this will only drive more medical providers away to other states.This bill that was designed to protect a small group for the purpose of eliminating potential competition. A Republican should be trying to reduce regulation, not increasing them to protect a few businesses.This bill to collect taxes and increase regulation on an industry already taxed and regulated by the federal government “establish powers and limitations regarding assessments;” a Republican should be trying to reduce regulation and taxes.

I thought we were fighting Obamacare! this bill gives legitimacy to the Affordable Care Act instead of stopping the implementation of this failed policy.This regulation does not increase safety in child-care centers but could increase costs.Georgia does not need to create an un-elected board that has control over taxpayer dollars.Why are we micromanaging the harvesting of Ginseng? Private property rights need protecting so we can enjoy more freedom.A Beef Commission should not be a government entity but a private entity. If bovine growers want to establish a commission, fine but it is not a governmental role..

Georgia should not pay for navigators to sell the idea of Obamacare.This is just the government acting as the “nanny state” and trying to override parental choice when purchasing child care.SB 24 manipulates medical expenses according to the Federal government instead of what is in the best interest of patients and Georgia. This bill violates private property rights. It also legislates against a free market. Creating another government bureaucracy that corrupts the marketplace is all this bill will accomplish.

This is just another foot in the door for ObamacareAdds additional bureaucracy & fees, disincentivizes parents from making their own evaluations of daycare centers, places arbitrary restrictions on providers.Increases Georgia's dependency on federal funding and makes health care more expensive.Huge property rights violation, irrational restriction on developmentAdds additional unaccountable bureaucracy, encourages cronyism, distorts markets, discourages competition.

Since the U.S. Constitution does not allow our federal government to regulate medical care, I would never support this federal overreach of licensing health insurance navigators. Furthermore, I would support nothing less than the nullification of Obamacare.This bill sets the stage for early indoctrination of our children. I am especially concerned about how the code sections of the Official Code of Georgia Annotated are amended by replacing the term "day-care center" with "child care learning center." Just imagine what they will be taught. Having the Deparment of Early Care and Learning act as the agent of the federal government, with all the power and duties listed in this bill, is apalling.So now we are taxing the infirmed? Really? I vote NO.Private property is an important concept of freedom and I will stand up against the infringement of property rights. Whether I want to plant ginseng on my own land, whether I re-plant it or not, or even if I pull it all up and give it away, it is my constitutional right; the government should not regulate it. Did anyone even read this bill and notice it was not speaking about public land, where depletion might be a problem? I am dissapointed that our Georgia legislators have done such an abysmal job of protecting the property rights of citizens.An un-holy alliance with the puppet-masters of the commissioner of Agriculture, president of the Georgia Farm Bureau Federation, and the member who serves an an ex-officio member of all commissions, elected by the Senate Agriculture and Consumer Affairs Committee appointing the five additional members (three beef cattle farmers, one dairy farmer, and one individual involved in the marketing of cattle)? What happens if the Commission, instead of the market fixes prices?

I realize that to grandstand by making a law already passed more difficult to implement is a
waste of my time as an elected official, and as a consequence, a further waste of Georgia taxpayer money. I do not intend to obstruct implementation of the ACA with the following caveat; I will oppose any attempts at levying new state taxes to comply with provisions of the law. This includes any attempts to raise funds for training ACA navigators as suggested by HB 198.
I have no problem revising language and transferring authority from one state agency to another provided that: no new taxes are levied for such an endeavor and no new regulatory powers are granted to the receiving agency which would require the hiring of additional taxpayer­funded staff to enforce said regulation. My main point of opposition to HB 354 however, is the $1000 fine against child care learning centers for each instance of failing to receive written consent from parents that they understand that said child care learning center does not carry liability insurance. Such a fine represents, to me, a clear example of persuasive punishment directed towards private enterprise for deciding not to comply with the state’s “recommendation”. In short, if the state is going to give private enterprise the option of complying with a recommendation, there should be no penalty for failure to comply.I guess the purpose of this bill is to try to generate revenue for matching federal funds for Medicaid, which is ridiculous. It makes no sense for the government to pay hospitals at a certain schedule for medicaid patients and then ask them to pay the back a percentage of their total revenue for the purpose of securing matching federal funds for medicaid.
That is like me giving you $20 bucks for mowing my lawn and then asking you to pay me back $2 so that I can get my parents to give me $2. You would also have to keep records for the next 6 years just so that you could prove that you actually gave me the $2. If you couldn't prove it, you would owe me 6% of the $2 for each month that you were late in paying it back. This bill is just a way to disguise reducing payments to hospitals for services that they provide to medicaid patients. It is also an elaborate scheme to redistribute hospital income from well­paying private insurance to fund medicaid.
It is actually a perfect example of what is, in my opinion, the biggest problem in government today; that is the unwillingness of politicians to put forth simple, transparent legislation. In this case, it would be political suicide to introduce a bill that would suggest simultaneously reducing medicaid payments to hospitals and forcefully redistributing hospital payments to prop up medicaid.
This bill strikes me as an example of meaningless legislation introduced to serve only the narrowest of special interests. To my knowledge (albeit limited), there is no emerging epidemic related to ginseng abuse, nor is there any impending ecological disaster secondary to growing ginseng on private property. This would be a simple no vote from me.My only point of contention with this bill as it is written is related to the way in which the last 5 members of the agricultural commodity commission for beef would be selected. In order to ensure that all beef and dairy farmers and individuals involved in the marketing of beef products have equal chance to serve on the board if interested, the selection of such members should be subjected to a vote by either the house or the senate. Also, any individual working in these fields should be able to nominate himself or herself as a candidate for membership. This prevents the likely scenario in which the commission's members represent only a small minority of farmers and marketers selected not as a result of their expertise, but as a result of their status as political insiders.

I would not support any legislation that in any way encouraged the acceptance of Obamacare in the state of Georgia. Obamacare not only expands the US Federal government beyond the bounds of the Constitution’s restrictions placed upon it but is unconstitutional in the manner in which it was passed. All tax bills must begin in the House. Obamacare began in the Senate. Since Chief Justice declared the fines a tax, Obamacare’s passage did not follow constitutional procedures. Therefore it must be rejected any implementation in this state.This regulations causes an unnecessary layers of bureaucracy. My main concern is the way this delves into private homes and regulates them. Parents can determine if their child is safe. Under this legislation a stay at home mom may not watch 3 other kids who are not their children. If a child’s parents trust a friend to watch their child even if there are other kids who are also being watched at the same home they should be allowed to make that decision. The state doesn’t need to delve into the decision. This regulation benefits larger day care facilities by putting a lot of over heard burden on “baby sitters” forcing them out of the market and only leaving facilities and businesses who can bear that burden. Aside from the taxation aspects (which I oppose), the most concerning thing to me is how much authority to levy taxes is turned over to a non-elected “board” or “department.” Through this the executive branch achieves more authority and less accountability to voters. This is a clear violation of private property rights. This is senseless legislation.I am, in general, opposed creating more layers of bureaucratic agencies. This bill adds another agency that has power to levy fees. This kind of bureaucracy prevents government transparency and separates accountability from electorate.

why support something that you disagree with with more taxpayer funded bureaucracy?Puts more Government control into our lives and makes it disadvantageous for people that can not afford a full time school facility accredited by the state? So people just need their children cared for while they work!I dont like any taxes that are taken by an unelected group of people, especially one's that can be used to cause advantage or disadvantageI didn't know Ginseng was now an endangered species and needed protecting? Absolute property rights violation!The Cattlemen already have a collective voice to make their case (Cattlemen's Association). A 'selected by crony's at the capital' board to make laws and fines against them without proper representation could hurt their free market opportunities and make way for easier Corporate control of their businesses?

Creates more government, does not allow for advice on choices nor accountabilityLimits parental choice, adds cost, gives govt nearly unlimited powers over service providers, special interests, contractors or parents will have no say, does nothing to solve any known problems - VERY SCARYIncreases our dependency on Federal Funds & increases MedicaidCreates monopolies, eliminates Free Markets & Personal Choices, dictates market condidtions, picks winners & losers. Has no reason to exist.Totally special interest, govt will have new powers that will cost consumers and farmers, does not appear to have any VALUE to anybody or a reason to exist, no known VALUE to taxpayers.

Allows insurance navigators. This supports the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) and is a Federal Intrusion into Healthcare. I am for Nullification of Obamacare.Government intrusion into Child Care increases regulation, costs, and fees. It puts the state in between the parent and the child care provider.The State Legislature is addicted to federal funds. Using a Hospital Bed tax to receive federal funds is disgraceful. This bill increases medical costs.This bill has nothing to do with ginseng and everything to do with Property Rights. This bill undermines property rights.I can not support increasing the size and scope of government. also this commission would deform the marketplace.
