President Cabrera addresses the crowd at the 2020 Legislative Briefing
State Legislative Priorities
Each year in January, we host a Legislative Briefing for Georgia Tech supporters to announce Georgia Tech’s state legislative priorities for the year.
We advocate for:
- State funding that supports GT Capital projects across campus
- "B" budget line items that support the work of GTRI and E12
- University System-wide priorities and funding
We track legislation relevant to the university system, and advocate for policies that allow the Institute to carry out its strategic goals.
Ongoing Support for B-Budget Items
The University System of Georgia has an “A” and a “B” budget.
- The “A” budget supports academic programs across the 26 member institutions.
- The “B” budget supports non-academic economic development programs. Examples of such programs are:
- Advanced Technology Development Center/Enterprise Innovation Institute, that supports Georgia Tech's ability to provide economic development for the state
- The Georgia Tech Research Institute, which focuses on applied research for key industries like agricultural technology research, health informatics, and numerous other technical areas.
