Sponsored Legislation

During my time in office, I have made a commitment to focus on sponsoring meaningful legislation for the betterment of Georgia and her citizens. I strive to serve our community as a leader who focuses on solutions to key challenges.  In the Senate, I have championed a number of positive reform efforts in areas including education, veterans / military affairs and health care. Fueled by passion for responsible government, I constantly work to challenge the status quo. Through my proposed legislation, I have proven that rising above what is expected is possible, and I will continue to do so in an effective and responsible manner.
