Tuesday, January 19th, marked the beginning of what we refer to as "Budget Week". Members of the House and Senate appropriations committees listened carefully as Governor Deal presented his proposals for the 2016 Fiscal Year amended budget and the 2017 Fiscal Year full budget.
State agency directors were also on hand to review their progress and make funding requests.
You can read a more detailed overview of budget week in my report below.
I will continue to update you throughout the legislative session and please, if you need anything at all, let me know. Thank you for your continued support and much needed prayers. It is an honor to serve you.
Senator of the 15th
