Legislative Update – Week 4

Week 4 (Legislative Days 8-11) was incredibly productive under the Gold Dome. We welcomed thousands of Georgians to the State Capitol, thoroughly vetted legislation in committee, and debate/passed important legislation in the House.
Easier Access
I was proud to author the first bill to pass the House during the 2018 Legislative Session. House Bill 661 – which was approved unanimously this week in our chamber – streamlines the process for filing and removing tax liens against real estate and improves transparency.
I also filed HB 694, which requires that sales reports be submitted electronically by those who sell motor vehicle fuel. This will ensure that sellers are not over taxed and local governments are not underpaid.
Adoption Bill Update
On Thursday, the House unanimously passed HB159, which revises Georgia’s antiquated adoption code. Through this important legislation, we can place more children in loving families throughout our state.
Breakfast with The Deal Family 
Last week, I was honored to attend a breakfast hosted by  Governor Nathan Deal  and  First Lady Sandra Deal  at the Governor’s Mansion. I hope you will join me in praying for the First Lady as she recovers from surgery and begins chemotherapy.
