Senate Recognizes GSP Officer Nathan Bradley

JaNice was happy to join the Senate in recognizing Georgia State Highway Patrol Officer Nathan Bradley on Thursday for his efforts in raising nearly $500,000 for children who lost their parents in a deadly crash last Halloween. It is truly rewarding to see such an outpouring of concern and caring from a member of our law enforcement community.

Issues of Interest

Just because we are expecting to have a quicker legislative session this year, this does not mean we will have a shortage of issues. I expect that we will be revisiting many topics addressed last year including education reform, religious liberty, the Transportation Funding Act of 2015, and a couple of issues I am not favorable toward expanding in Georgia: medical marijuana and the legalization of casino gambling. I expect the preservation of the HOPE Scholarship, teacher merit pay, and a plan to reduce the amount of student testing to also be high on the list of priorities for the session.

comprehensive range of services and capabilities that include vacuum and pressure forming, twin sheet

This facility will allow for future expansions to handle their long-term growth plan,” said Marty Jones,

considered for C&K’s expansion.” Advising C&K through the process were Wesley Budd and Willian Hearn
with CBRE, the world’s largest commercial real estate services firm.
