On Monday, January 23, we returned to the Gold Dome to begin the third week of the 2017 session. The week was extremely busy and brought about significant progress as several House committees and subcommittees met throughout the week to consider legislation, and on Thursday, the House overwhelmingly passed our first bill of the session, the Amended Fiscal Year 2017 budget. I covered the highlights of this in last week's newsletter.
We also convened for a joint session with the Senate on Wednesday to hear the Chief Justice of the Georgia Supreme Court, Justice P. Harris Hines, deliver the annual State of the Judiciary Address, which reports what the judicial branch has accomplished and the challenges it faces in the year ahead.
I am honored serve on the following committees: Education, Energy, Utilities & Telecommunications, Judiciary Non-Civil, Juvenile Justice, Appropriations Sub-Committee on Transportation, and Legislative and Congressional Reapportionment.
