Fall has finally arrived! With this season comes cooler weather, Fall festivals and our continued preparation for the upcoming session. It is hard to believe that we are already in the last quarter of the year. 

As our great state continues our recovery efforts following Hurricane Irma, all eyes are on Georgia farms. US Secretary of Agriculture, Sonny Perdue, made a visit to the Peach state to evaluate the storm's damage to our largest economic driver.
 
Although we have no control over the weather in the General Assembly, we do have control over legislation we pass to help ensure the success of our Georgia farms. Below you will find this update focusing on AG bills, which were recently signed into law by Governor Deal. As always, your input is welcome! Please contact me with your ideas or concerns. 

If you need anything at all regarding legislative matters, please contact me at anytime. Thanks so much for your ongoing support. May God bless each and every one of you!


Agriculture Legislation Overview

It is no secret that Georgia Agriculture is the largest economic producer in the state. Our farming roots run deep as agriculture is Georgia's oldest industry which contributes over $70 billion annually to our state economy. 

Currently, one in seven Georgians work in agriculture, forestry or related fields. USDA reports that there are 40,000 farms, which encompass approximately 9.3 million acres of land. As we continue to rank as top producers in chicken, blueberries, peanuts and pecans, the Georgia General Assembly works hard to protect the wellbeing of our AG industry.
 


Thank You! 
 
Recovery efforts from Hurricane Irma have truly been a statewide effort. I would like to say a special thanks to our first responders, as well as, the line crews who worked around the clock to restore power to the 1.5 million homes affected by the storm.

As many of you know, I am a huge proponent of learning a valuable trade as a career option. Working as a lineman is a trade! If you are interested in further looking into this rewarding career, the Georgia EMC's offer an apprentice program. This is a great way to make a living, while serving the communities you love. 

House Rural Development Study Committee

 
House Rural Development Study Committee continues to make its way across our state. Meetings will focus on Georgia's rural economy by focusing on educational achievement, infrastructure needs, access to health care and economic growth incentives. 

The study committee will stream all meetings live. For more information regarding the House Rural Development Study Committee, please click here.
