Georgia Legislative update from Rep. Bruce Williamson (R-Monroe)


With Crossover Day behind us and Sine Die right around the corner, Georgia lawmakers are working with haste to advance legislation that spurs economic growth, enhances access to quality healthcare, protects Georgia students, and secures a bright future for our state.

Governor Signs Amended Budget 
This week, Governor Brian Kemp met with legislative and community leaders at North Side High School to sign the FY 2019 Amended Budget. This budget includes $30,000 for Georgia schools to fund safety initiatives, provides $20 million in storm relief to Georgia farmers, improves access to healthcare for rural Georgians, and funds public education and public safety needs.
Keeping Elections Safe and Secure
HB 316 passed the House and is now pending the Governor’s signature. This legislation allows the Secretary of State’s office to update Georgia’s aging voting system and modernizes our voting laws to ensure that elections are always secure, accessible, and fair in the Peach State.
Remembering Fukushima
Last week, we joined with Japanese Ambassador Takashi Shinozuka to remember the 8th anniversary of the Fukushima Earthquake and Tsunami. Our thoughts and prayers remain with the victims’ families and communities impacted.
Georgia’s Police Chiefs
The Gold Dome was filled with blue this week as we welcomed police chiefs from across the state. These men and women work tirelessly to keep our communities safe. We appreciate their service, sacrifice, and hard work!
House Pages at the Capitol

This week, several students from District 115 served as House Pages. These young Georgians played a vital role in the legislative process. We appreciate their commitment to public service.
As always, it is an honor to represent you and your loved ones in the Georgia General Assembly.  Please feel free to call (404-656-5024) or email ( with any questions or concerns.
Rep. Bruce Williamson
