This year, the Georgia General Assembly’s legislative session wrapped up April 3. Over the last few months, I sent periodic updates to you discussing key legislation and events. At the end of the 2009 session, the House and Senate sent all legislation that had been passed by both chambers to the governor’s desk. The governor then had 40 days to decide what legislation to sign into law. Wednesday, May 13, was the final day for the governor to sign or veto those bills and resolutions. Now that this deadline has passed and the governor has signed 337 bills and eight resolutions into law, I would like to update you on the status of some of the legislation I mentioned earlier this year.
