KEMP PRAISES LEGISLATION PASSED BY THE GEORGIA GENERAL ASSEMBLY DURING 2022 SESSION
April 6, 2022
(Media release from the Office of Governor Brian Kemp):
Governor Brian P. Kemp on Tuesday made the following statement on his administration’s budget and legislative package to build a safer, stronger Georgia crossing the finish line on Sine Die:
Last night, we made history when we closed the books on one of the most successful and impactful legislative sessions the Peach State has ever had. We worked hard, together, to pass both budgetary and legislative measures that direct money back into the pockets of hardworking Georgians, put parents, students, and teachers first, invest in our workforce, support Georgia’s thriving economy, strengthen public safety, and create innovative solutions to our healthcare challenges. I’m very proud of what we accomplished this year, and my administration thanks Lt. Governor Duncan, Speaker Ralston, and members of the Georgia General Assembly for working with us to get our entire legislative package and more across the finish line. I look forward to the positive impact these measures will have on Georgians as I finish signing them into law.
Below, please see a list highlighting many of the proposals championed, or supported, by Governor Kemp in the 2022 convening of the Georgia General Assembly. The Office of the Governor has 40 days to review all bills passed by the Georgia General Assembly. As the office conducts its review, additional updates will be provided on measures that are signed into law. As a reminder, the Office of the Governor posts all signed or vetoed legislation here.
