Senator Tolleson's Capitol Update

 

As we write this, the halls of the State Capitol are filled with the smell of peanut butter as today is Peanut Butter and Jelly Day, one of the most anticipated days under the Gold Dome!  PB+J Day brings a smile to the faces of legislators, staff and lobbyists throughout the building.  Our thanks to the Georgia Agribusiness Council and Georgia Peanut Commission for their sponsorship of this great event.  If you have never had a “fried PB+J”, you must treat yourself- you will be glad you did!
