As chairman of the House Appropriations Committee since 2011, he has worked closely with state and parliamentary leaders to implement the Conservative principles on which he was elected. He focused on reducing government waste, streamlining services, and reforming Georgia’s tax code. President England has also prioritized state spending to secure full funding for public schools and to invest in the infrastructure and economic development initiatives that over the past eight years have helped create 800,000 new jobs in Georgia. He is co-chair of the Rural Hospital Stabilization Committee and the House Rural Development Council. Working diligently throughout the year, he led legislative efforts to boost rural communities in Georgia.
After attending the University of Georgia, the representative from England became a partner in the fourth generation family construction company. He is also a farmer and later became an agro-entrepreneur. Now as President/CEO of Pete’s Enterprises, Inc., he provides consulting services in the construction and agribusiness industries.
Prior to his election to the Georgia General Assembly, he served as president of the Barrow County Chamber of Commerce and in 2015 was named Citizen of the Year. In 2016, a lecture hall on the Barrow County campus of Lanier Tech was named in her honor to recognize her commitment to the institution and the community she serves. In 2017, a new 20,000 square foot leadership center at the FFA-FCCLA Center in Newton County was named The Terry England Leadership Center. And in 2018, Mercer University awarded the representative of England his honorary doctorate of laws.
