Just over one month ago, we completed our 2018 legislative session. It was an eventful 40 days on Capitol Hill as we tackled issues such as tax reform; healthcare access; education reform; and infrastructure to help foster economic development and growth, especially in rural areas.

The month of May is of great importance because it brings about our state primary elections. The primary is set for May 22nd and it is important as this year we are electing a new Governor, along with all of the other constitutional statewide offices. Early voting has already begun so please make sure to go VOTE! 

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 2018
Per Georgia law, Governor Deal is given 40 days after session adjourns to either sign or veto proposed legislation. If no signature or veto is taken by this year's May 8th deadline, the legislation automatically becomes law, effective July 1. This year we took action on a number of important measures. Education, healthcare, public safety, rural revitalization 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 Study Committees

 Just because we are no longer in session does not mean we get time off! We all await to hear from House Leadership in regards to Study Committee Assignments. Study Committees allow us to further research a policy area before passing any legislation in regards to specific issues. This year the House has a number of committees, which I will cover in further detail later in the year. See below a listing of Study Committees for the remainder of the year.
