U.S. Rep. Rick Allen, R-Georgia 12th District, hopes Congress will vote next week on two major pieces of legislation: the Graham-Cassidy Republican replacement for “Obamacare” and a budget that will help set the stage for tax reform. While on a tour of farms and agribusinesses in the district for input on the five-year 2018 Farm Bill, Allen visited the Statesboro Herald for a conversation that focused more on next week’s issues. A vehement critic of the previous administration and Democrats generally during his 2014 and 2016 campaigns, Allen now expresses a need for the parties to work together, especially on tax reform.
