Legislative Update from Georgia Rep. Bruce Williamson – Crossover Day

Guest Column from Georgia Rep. Bruce Williamson

Friends,
The Georgia General Assembly is hard at work for the people of this great state.
We worked deep into the night on Crossover Day to advance legislation that will grow jobs, improve educational outcomes, expand access to quality healthcare, strengthen rural communities, keep families safe, and protect the unborn.
With just ten legislative days left, it’s early mornings and long nights until the gavel drops on Sine Die!
Streamlining Georgia Tax Code
 
Last week, two bills to streamline Georgia’s tax code passed out of the House. HB 406 and HB 378 ensure effective and fair assessment and collection of certain taxes across the state.
I was proud to craft and introduce these bills, which are now pending consideration in the State Senate.
Protecting The Unborn
On Thursday night, the Georgia General Assembly passed legislation to protect the unborn.
HB481, the Living Infants Fairness and Equality (LIFE) Act,  reflects our values as a state and ensures that all Georgians have the opportunity to live, grow, and prosper.
Fighting Modern Slavery
Last week, the House advanced legislation to crack down on human trafficking and provide much needed resources to the victims.
I am proud of our efforts under the Gold Dome to end modern slavery in Georgia and throughout the world.
Students at the Gold Dome
What an honor to welcome students from the 115th district to the State Capitol. These third graders from Walnut Grove were certainly the best mannered visitors under the Gold Dome. They make me WALTON Proud!
Local Law Enforcement at the Gold Dome
 
Walton County Sheriff Joe Chapman stopped by the State Capitol this week to discuss public safety and pending legislation.
I appreciate his leadership in our community and efforts to ensure a safe future for Walton County families.

House Pages at the Capitol

 

This week, several students from District 115 served as House Pages. These young men and women played a vital role in the legislative process and we appreciate their desire to learn and serve.
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 (bruce.williamson@house.ga.gov) with any questions or concerns.
Sincerely,
Rep. Bruce Williamson
District 115
Georgia General Assembly
