• What we'll do
Calling all EFGA members to join together on Tuesday, February 6th at the Georgia Capitol. 9AM - 12PM
We will meet at 9AM in the rotunda, same level as you enter after going through security and form a group. We will have a brief review of the lobby process and proceed to the upper level to meet with Senators sponsoring SB315.
The sponsors for SB315 are as follows:
(1) Thompson, Bruce 14th
(2) Albers, John 56th
(3) Cowsert, Bill 46th
(4) Miller, Butch 49th
(5) Unterman, Renee 45th
(6) Mullis, Jeff 53rd
If you know ANYONE who is in these districts and would be willing to make a trip to the Capitol on Tuesday please URGE them to consider participating.
At this point the bill will be reviewed by the Rules Committee having already passed the Public Safety Committee. All of the Senators listed with the exception of the bills author (Senator Bruce Thompson) are on the Rules Committee. This stacked committee is a challenge but we will use our best arguments to explain concerns and unintended consequences and try and stop it from leaving committee.
Please bring a photo ID for the security check and dress in business attire.
