From the Desk of 
Senator  Ed Harbison

Last Friday, we completed legislative day 16 of 40. Which means by the end of this week, we will be halfway finished with this years session! 

Last week, I introduced  Senate Bill 144 , known as the Georgia Lottery for Veterans Act. This legislation would provide that the GA Lotto put in place one or more games where revenue gained, would be designated for the benefit of our Georgia Veterans. The bill has been assigned to the Senate Higher Education Committee and I will keep you posted on how we proceed with this measure in the days to come. 

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. 

I will continue to keep you up to date in all that is happening on Capitol Hill. If you have questions or concerns, please reach out to me anytime. As always, it is a pleasure to serve you and our district that I am proud to call home!
