Valdosta - When the Georgia General Assembly begins their 2007 Session Monday, a South Georgia Senator has big plans.

State Senator Tim Golden will work to eliminate energy taxes for manufacturers, renew the state sales tax holiday, and try to exempt citizens over the age of 62 from paying state income tax.

Golden also says he will work hard to improve Medicaid, health care, and benefits in the state.  "There's a strain on Peachcare right now. It's lacking about 130 million dollars in federal funding, so we'll be working to secure those funds from federal officials and try to secure and make sure peach care stays sovereign because its such a great program for the children of Georgia," says State Senator Tim Golden

The General Assembly session ends in March.
