2023 Senate Study Committee on Expanding Georgia's Workforce

ATLANTA |Today, Lt. Governor Burt Jones announced legislative and citizen appointments to the Senate Study Committee on Expanding Georgia's Workforce.

“During the 2023 session, reducing barriers for Georgia’s workforce was a top priority,” said Lt. Governor Burt Jones. “Senate led initiatives, like Senate Bill 3 and Senate Bill 157, were a starting point. Experts on this study committee, along with other stakeholders, are going to review current best practices and programs focused on expanding Georgia’s workforce across all industries. They will also identify workforce shortages along with barriers preventing willing and able Georgians to gain employment. I am confident this committee’s work will lead to recommendations on how to best expand opportunities for Georgia’s workforce.”

2023 Senate Occupational Licensing Study Committee

ATLANTA |Today, Lt. Governor Burt Jones announced legislative appointments to the Senate Occupational Licensing Study Committee.

“This study committee will take a comprehensive look at occupational licensing across Georgia’s industries,” said Lt. Governor Burt Jones. “The appointees will review current regulatory requirements and consider potential barriers, such as fees, for citizens willing to work in a variety of occupations. Antiquated requirements that can be removed, without impacting one’s ability to perform their job or public safety, must be addressed. Any positive changes we can make to ease burdens for those wishing to work in our state are critical, and I look forward to this committees’ work.”
