Budget week
Neither the House or Senate were in Session this week as meetings of the Joint House and Senate Appropriations Committees heard testimony from the Governor and various Department Heads regarding the proposed FY 2018 Budget. Though I do not serve on Appropriations, I monitored the hearings via the internet and met with several constituents and advocacy groups during the week.
The House streams most meetings live and you will find a schedule here.

Evaluating the cost of Georgia’s death penalty
Budget week provided an opportunity to join with other fiscal conservatives to begin a discussion on the enormous cost saddled on taxpayers by prosecuting death penalty cases.
Link to my full statement at the event.
Let me hear from you
Beginning Monday, January 23 (after the Falcons defeat the Packers), we will return for a full week of legislating and committee meetings. Please let me know how I may serve you.
As always, I remain appreciative that you allow me to serve as your state Representative. I encourage you to contact me with any comments or questions you have about the legislation being considered at your state Capitol.
Please make note of my new office and phone number:
613-D Coverdell Legislative Office Building
Atlanta, GA 30334

Thanks again for allowing me to serve,
 Brett Harrell
