legislative update
The 2018 Georgia General Assembly has run its course. Many factors including an election year with more offices up for grabs than the state has seen in over a decade, a former and well respected Governor lying in state, and fatigue on legislators of three-months of continual and hard work proved to make this final week one for the ages and the Georgia Retailers have been in the thick of it all working to protect our industry.
