Collins submits resume to Governor Kemp for Senate Seat

Featured, Politics
Ga Rep Collins

Georgia, – Georgia Governor Brian Kemp began a process to fill U.S. Sen. Johnny Isakson’s seat this week. The Governor set up a website requiring the potential candidates to submit a resume. FYN has learned Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.) has submitted his resume for consideration. The seat will be filled following Johnny Isakson’s retirement effective December 31, 2019 and the chosen applicant will serve for the remainder of his unexpired term.

Rep. Collins is a United States Representative from Georgia’s 9th congressional district. Collins has served the 9th District since 2013. Previously he was a state representative in the Georgia House of Representatives, representing the 27th district, which includes portions of Hall, Lumpkin, and White counties.

Collins is considered to be a front runner for the Senator seat. Because this would leave a vacancy we question who will replace Collins. So who will be the new US Representative in the 9th District? According to our information as a result of Collins receiving the appointment, that would trigger a special election. What names will surface in the 9th District hoping to take Collins’ place? FetchYourNews will follow closely and update as more information becomes available.

Collins Voices Disappointment Over USDA’s Rejection of Poultry Petition

WASHINGTON—Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.) released the following statement in response to the Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) rejection of a petition to increase line speeds in first-processing zones, where workers inspect—but do not disarticulate—birds undergoing automated cleaning:

“Evidence demonstrates that higher line speeds can preserve and even promote both worker and food safety, and I appreciate the USDA’s recognition of data indicating that inspectors can conduct effective inspections at line speeds of up to 175 birds per minute. While I am disappointed in the decision to deny the petition and the request for uncapped line speeds that would increase the competitiveness of America’s poultry industry with countries that allow higher line speeds, the USDA has committed to establishing a process to grant individual waivers for more efficient line speeds. I look forward to learning more details about the criteria necessary for these waivers and am hopeful that this will enable domestic poultry producers to foster safer, streamlined operations that benefit workers and consumers.”

Collins Praises Corps for Heeding Public Input

Politics, State & National
My chief concern is that residents near Lakes Lanier and Hartwell have a platform for communicating their interests to the Corps, and we continue to make progress on this front.”

WASHINGTON—The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Mobile District has made a decision to allow private floating facilities on Lake Lanier to use security cameras. The USACE repealed the prohibition on cameras after a 30-day comment period during which feedback overwhelming supported the use of cameras. Congressman Doug Collins (R-Ga.) has consistently asked the USACE to seek and consider public comments as it makes decisions regarding northeast Georgia’s lake communities.

“I applaud the Corps’ decision to accept public comment and respond accordingly by allowing Lake Lanier residents to install security cameras on their property. My team and I have tirelessly worked to make our neighbors’ voices heard on the issues that impact them every day. My chief concern is that residents near Lakes Lanier and Hartwell have a platform for communicating their interests to the Corps, and we continue to make progress on this front,” said Collins.
