From the Desk of 
Senator  Ed Harbison

The Senate reconvened for week three after a busy week of 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. 

We also heard the first two bills of the session on the floor last week-signaling that the 2016 legislative session is well underway. Senate Bill 137 would expand current Georgia law to allow corporations to collect full property insurance payouts when a residence is completely destroyed by fire, and was unanimously passed. Senate Bill 263 would allow police officers who are retiring or injured on-the-job to retain their badge and firearm as compensation.

Again, thank you for allowing me to serve you. As I discussed with my friend Chuck Williams, in his Sunday Interview, 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!
