Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle has announced several Senate and Joint Study Committee appointments. These study committees, created with the passage of both Senate and House Resolutions during the 2016 Legislative Session, will examine and analyze a host of issues affecting Georgia citizens. The findings will be submitted to Lt. Gov. Cagle and will be essential in advising the legislature in crafting legislation to address the various topics covered in both Senate and Joint Study Committees.

“With the General Assembly adjourned, the interim provides an opportunity for legislators to delve into the numerous issues facing Georgians,” said Lt. Gov. Cagle. “These study committee chairs and members are uniquely qualified to develop real, lasting solutions aimed at building a better Georgia now and for future generations. I look forward to evaluating the findings of these committees as we look ahead to next session and beyond.”

I will chair the Senate Study Committee on Higher Education Affordability and serve on the Senate Regional Transit Solutions Study Committee. Additional study committee appointments will be made in the coming weeks. Here are the initial study committees:
