Thursday’s adjournment marked the 10th day of this year’s legislative session, meaning that we only have 30 days left to vet and analyze legislation before handing it over to Governor Deal for final review. This past week was full of notable accomplishments, including the passing of two bills on the Senate floor, the adoption of our adjournment calendar and of course legislation being introduced and reviewed. Last week, Senate Resolution 502 passed out of the Senate Standing Rules Committee with unanimous support. This is a resolution I sponsored that will encourage Congress and federal agencies to support high-speed broadband access in rural America. This particular piece of legislation has been an ongoing initiative for myself and many of my colleagues, as it is beneficial to the expansion of businesses, education and health care in our rural communities. Access to high-speed broadband should not be a problem for citizens of Georgia and I am confident that through this resolution, we can encourage the federal government to take action.
