Last Thursday, we completed legislative day 18 of 40. Which means today marks halfway finished with this years session!
We had a productive week in the Senate as we passed legislation dealing with critical issues such as healthcare, veterans affairs, and adoption. All Senate bills receiving favorable consideration now move to the House for further discussion.
House bills which passed the Senate last week have now been sent to Governor Deal, where he will either veto or sign the bills into law. You can read full bill summaries in my update below.
As we continue to review legislation, meeting schedules and days under the Gold Dome are becoming more hectic. Legislators are working tirelessly to ensure their bills make the Crossover Day deadline, which is set earlier this year than past sessions.
