The 2017 legislative session came to a close just under two months ago. We passed a number of initiatives over the duration of our 40 day session. Measures such as education, healthcare and public safety remained at the forefront of issues addressed.

Since returning home, I have continued my fast paced schedule, touring the district, addressing constituent concerns and attending legislative panels and discussions! I humbly thank you for your continued support as I continue serving our district in the Georgia House of Representatives. 

As always, if you need anything at all, please feel free to contact me at anytime. Thanks so much and I hope to see all of you very soon! 

Session Overview
Major Issues Passed  in 2017
Per Georgia law, Governor Deal is given 40 days after session adjourns to either sign or veto proposed legislation. If no signature or veto was taken by this year's May 9th deadline, the legislation automatically becomes law, effective July 1. This year we took action on a number of important measures. Education, healthcare, public safety and military affairs were top priorities as we continue our efforts to move Georgia forward. Below you will find a highlight of major bills passed during our 40 days on Capitol Hill.      

House Rural Development Study Committee

This year, the House approved the formation of the House Rural Development Study Committee. The council will look to improve rural Georgia's economy by focusing on educational achievement, infrastructure needs, access to health care and economic growth incentives. It will issue an initial report of findings and recommendations by the end of this year and a follow-up report by the end of 2018.

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