From the Desk of 
Senator  Ed Harbison


The Senate reconvened for week three for continued budget hearings and committee meetings. It was also a very productive week in that we've finally got the ball rolling on a number of pieces of legislation that are sure to benefit the people of Georgia. 

Most notably, the House voted on the first budget measure of many. You can read more about the Amended Fiscal Year 2017 Budget that passed the House in my full report below. The AFY 2017 budget now heads over to us, in the Senate, for further consideration.  

Again, thank you for allowing me to serve you, as it is an honor to hold this seat of the people. Things are continuing to advance under the Gold Dome and I will keep you updated throughout the legislative session. Please, if you need anything at all, let me know. I am here for you!

Senator Harbison in Action!
Commending Roosevelt Jackson 
Sen. Ed Harbison (D - Columbus) sponsored Senate Resolution 47, recognizing Roosevelt Jackson for his enthusiasm for life and commitment to achieving his goals. Jackson's most recent accomplishment was receiving an honorary high school diploma from Marion County High School at 98-years-old. His achievement inspires students to treasure the importance of education and shows that education is a lifelong continuation where each path brings new lessons. Jackson also played baseball for numerous teams in the Negro league and is the oldest living scout, manager and former player from that league. - SR 47
