The 153rd Georgia General Assembly is off to a great start! Week one kicked off with the inauguration of your state leaders and Governor Deal’s State of the State address while officers of the Senate were elected and committees appointed. Week two was comprised of hearings for the state’s annual fiscal budget. Week three started with work on SB 1, which guarantees insurance coverage of children with autism, that the Senate later passed unanimously on the floor. The bill is now headed to the House of Representatives.
Georgia works best when we work together; as session progresses we hope that you contact your legislators with ideas and concerns because your involvement helps us build a better Georgia. Visit the Senate website here.
