The Georgia General Assembly has only been in session for 18 days and Georgians have already seen a few great victories and heated debates.

The most prominent success is the passage of House Bill 159. The bill majorly updated adoption laws in Georgia, making it easier for families to bring children into loving homes. Governor Nathan Deal said in a press release that he is looking “forward to signing this legislation into law.”

Atlanta was named a contender on Amazon’s shortlist for the company’s second headquarters. According to Amazon, the $5 billion deal could bring tens of thousands of jobs to the state. The race for the headquarters is ramping up and making the shortlist is certainly a good sign for the Georgia economy.

During these 18 days in session, the Senate also unanimously voted to condemn the National Football league for allowing players to kneel during the national anthem. Shortly thereafter, they voted unanimously to commend the NFL for bringing the Super Bowl back to Atlanta next year.

The Georgia General Assembly will reconvene on Monday, Feb. 12. It is expected during the rest of this session that Georgians will see further debate on religious liberty bills, state taxes and confederate monuments.
