ATLANTA (Friday 13, 2012) On Monday legislators from across the state filled the Senate and House Chambers excited to begin another historic year for Georgia. Throughout the past year we have made great strides toward economic recovery for our state. We have brought jobs to Georgia, lowered the unemployment rate and addressed the looming water issues that face our state. However, much is left to be accomplished. Georgia’s education system still lags behind the majority of other states in our nation, and our economy has not yet fully recovered. This session will be crucial as we continue to take necessary steps toward putting our state on the right path.
On the first day of the 2012 Legislative Session, we passed the following bills: a clear message that education reform is vital to our success as Georgians.
