This week we returned to Capitol Hill to resume the eighth week of the legislative session. The dreaded Crossover Day Deadline is tomorrow! That means we have hit high gear as every legislator is trying their best to get their bills heard and passed prior to midnight on Friday!

As far as hot issue topics, it seems that as of Monday, Casino Gaming will not make it into law this legislative session. Other controversial issues, such as the expansion of medical cannabis, are still in play. 

Leading into the homestretch of the 2017 session, please reach out to me with questions! As always, Thank you so much for allowing me to be your voice under the Gold Dome. May God bless and keep each and every one of you.  


Session Update
Week  7

On Tuesday, February 21, we reconvened for the seventh week of the 2017 legislative. We completed day 24 on Friday, and we are all working hard to make the Crossover Day deadline which takes place this Friday!  It was a lively week under the Gold Dome as we drafted, discussed and passed legislation to address a number of critical issues for the betterment of education, our foster care system and our military and veterans' population.
 
Representative Pruett in Action!
I am always glad to welcome Georgia CASA volunteers to the Capitol. These volunteers are Angels on earth as they work on behalf of our children. In Georgia_ approximately 12_700 children at any one time are entangled in the foster care system because they are victims of abuse or neglect. Society has a fundamental obligation to ensure the basic rights and needs of every child are met. CASA volunteers are a formidable force that fight for these rights. If you aren_t familiar with CASA_ I encourage to read more about their incredible works.
