Average Georgians rarely give state tax policy a second thought, especially compared to critical challenges like education and health care. But few issues matter more to the pocketbooks of Georgia families, the bottom line of Georgia businesses and the ability of state and local governments to fund quality public services.

Editor's note: This article has been revised to reflect the following correction, which will appear in Wednesday's print edition. Liberty Regional Medical Center communications officer Rene Harwell confirmed Friday that Scott Kroell had retired as the hospital's CEO after 21 years and said Donna Cochrane, the hospital's chief nursing officer, had been named interim CEO. An article that appeared in Sunday's edition incorrectly characterized her response to the Coastal Courier, making it appear - inaccurately - that she had evaded the reporter's question. The Courier regrets the error.
