In his wrap up of the goings on under the Gold Dome in downtown Atlanta, Georgia Rep. Bruce Williamson (R-Monroe) notes that with the adoption of Senate Resolution 712, the House will stand adjourned and not reconvene until Tuesday, Feb. 18.
“The House and Senate Appropriations committees will be meeting throughout the week to take a closer look at the AFY 2020 and FY 2021 budgets to hear from different state agency officials about the impact of the budget proposals on their departments,” Williamson said.
He also noted that while Georgia’s economy is booming, a side issue related to the boom is the impact it has on the state’s freight and logistics.
“Did you know that Georgia is home to the world’s busiest airport and the fastest growing container port in the nation? With all this traffic, Georgia’s economy is booming—but a couple of bumps in efficiency are to be expected,” Williamson said. “The Georgia Commission on Freight and Logistics was created to find positive policy solutions to deal with issues arising in freight and logistics. With the passage of House Resolution 935, the commission will be able to continue its work to ensure that freight moves efficiently throughout our state!”
