This was the third week of the legislative session. Some of the House committees met for the first time this week to adopt their committee rules and I look forward to getting to work in my committees.
I’m working with fellow democrats and several across the aisle on exciting legislation. I will provide an update on legislation I sponsor and co-sponsor in the coming weeks.

After a pause for several years because of COVID, the House Page Program is back!
The program is for Georgia’s students between 12 and 18 years of age and older to visit the State Capitol, learn about the legislative process, and help facilitate business on the House floor by relaying messages between legislators and citizens and lobbyists, delivering copies of legislation, and performing other tasks.
This year we will only have 5 slots per representative. If your child would like to apply to serve as a page this Legislation Session, please fill out this form by Friday and email it to my Chief of Staff, Kennedie McClung at [email protected].
