Report From The Capitol

REPORT FROM THE CAPITOL (1/30/2017)

Hi, Friends, So sorry I have not begun these articles until this week. I do appreciate the opportunity to be your voice in the Capitol during this legislative session. The past two weeks have been very busy, meeting new people and moving offices and all that stuff, in addition to session and committ...


REPORT FROM THE CAPITOL (3/28/2016)

On Thursday, March 24, the 2016 legislative session came to an end when the House and Senate completed the 40th and final legislative day, also known as “sine die.” Sine die is a Latin term meaning, “without assigning a day for further meeting.” My translation…”We are done.” When we convened for the...


REPORT FROM THE CAPITOL (3/21/2016)

The House reconvened on Monday, March 14, for day 36 of the 2016 legislative session as sine die (the end) is just days away. We had a busy legislative agenda for the week, both on the House floor and in committee meetings to continue to vote on and review legislation. With day 40 right around the ...


REPORT FROM THE CAPITOL (3/14/2016)

Spring is in the air as I type this, and it makes me smile I got the grapes pruned and blueberries sprayed just in time. We kicked off the ninth week of the 2016 session on Monday, March 7 with legislative day 32. We now have 5 legislative days left. This week as fun, as we had Murray Youth and Ad...


REPORT FROM THE CAPITOL (3/7/2016)

Sorry I missed last week’s article of what’s going on at your State Capitol. I had a few bills to present on what’s called “Crossover Day” to prepare for and a sock hop to go to, and I just ran out of time. Had to get in some sweetheart time, too, as we were in Atlanta every day the week before that...


REPORT FROM THE CAPITOL (2/22/2016)

Tuesday, February 16, marked the beginning of our seventh week of the 2016 legislative session. With “Crossover Day” rapidly approaching, we are evaluating crucial pieces of legislation each day that we are in session. This week, we passed several bills, and among those was one of our most important...


REPORT FROM THE CAPITOL (2/14/2016)

It was the usual busy week in the legislature. “Whew!” is what I was thinking until Wednesday afternoon and night when we got the news that one of our troopers was shot in the line of duty and that long pause, that evening we heard it was one of our neighbors. Our busy lives were put on hold while w...


REPORT FROM THE CAPITOL (2/9/2016)

The House reconvened on Monday, February 1, to start our fourth week of the 2016 legislative session. With a month of session behind us, we are hard at work in the General Assembly working on meaningful legislation that will have a positive impact on all Georgians. Numerous bills have been approved...


REPORT FROM THE CAPITOL (1/25/2016)

This week, the General Assembly began what is arguably one of the most important weeks of our 40-day session, otherwise known as “Budget Week.” Needless to say, our second week under the Gold Dome was busy and resulted in significant progress, especially in the amended budget. Each session we...


REPORT FROM THE CAPITOL (1/18/2016)

We began the second session of the 153rd General Assembly on Monday, January 11, 2016. With an ambitious legislative agenda to navigate, and only 40 legislative days to accomplish the task, we got straight to work. The House convened every day to take up business, and our committees began meeting to...
