Sen. Larry Walker - Capitol Recap: Sine Die

The Second Session of the 156th Georgia General Assembly has officially adjourned Sine Die. After a few relentless weeks of votes, the gavel has fallen for the final time this year and signaled the conclusion of our legislative business for another year. This year proved to be a productive one, with both chambers of the legislature granting final approval to a combined total of nearly 200 bills and resolutions, many of them with overwhelming bipartisan support.

Capitol Recap from Sen Larry Walker: Weeks 10 and 11

This past week, the Senate experienced one of the longest and most critical days of the legislative session – Crossover Day. In this marathon voting session, the Senate considered over 45 pieces of legislation over the course of roughly eleven hours. The work did not end there, however, as we convened for three additional legislative days this week, concluding with Day 31 on Friday.

Capitol Recap from Sen Larry Walker: Week 9

As Crossover Day continues to inch closer, our days debating legislation in the Chamber have grown longer and more urgent and committees have worked long into the night to bring additional improvements to the legislation before their consideration. With many bills still available for action in the Senate, it will be nigh impossible to reach all of them before our Tuesday deadline. However, we are working to ensure we are prioritizing legislation of the most importance to our constituents statewide.

Capitol Recap from Sen Larry Walker: Week 8

Last week marked our busiest yet, as our votes on the Senate floor and work in our committee meetings has accelerated in anticipation of Crossover Day, which will fall on March 15. Though this week brought with it long debates and passionate discussions, the result was successful passage of several bills that strengthen our Second Amendment rights, protect the health and safety of pregnant mothers and loosen long overdue restrictions when it comes to the use of masks by our students in schools. Additionally, the Senate passed our version of the amended budget for 2022, which is the first part of our yearly, and only session obligation required by the Georgia Constitution. We will soon begin sub-committee meetings on the Fiscal Year 2023 budget.

Capitol Recap from Sen Larry Walker: Weeks 5 & 6

This past week, the Senate convened for our most productive legislative days yet, with several substantial pieces of legislation receiving favorable passage by the Senate body. As the pace continues to increase, our schedules have begun to fill with full days spent in our respective committees once our business in the Senate Chamber is complete. While the speed has certainly increased, it has not impeded the Senate from carrying out our work.

Senator Larry Walker Speaks to Georgia Farm Bureau at Annual Advocacy Day

On Tuesday, February 8, Sen. Larry Walker (R – Perry) spoke to members of the Georgia Farm Bureau at their annual advocacy day at the Capitol. “As our state’s largest and most important industry, it is vital that we continue to advance policies that support agriculture across Georgia,” said Sen. Walker. “Of particular importance are issues related to protecting our farmers from frivolous nuisance lawsuits, which we aim to address through the Freedom to Farm Act this year. It was a pleasure to address members of the Georgia Farm Bureau, policymakers in the field of agriculture, and many student FFA members who will go on to lead the next generation of agriculture leaders in our state. I want to thank Georgia Farm Bureau President Tom McCall for always advocating for our state’s farmers and I look forward to supporting GFB priorities in my role as Chairman of the Senate Agriculture and Consumer Affairs Committee.”

Capitol Recap from Sen. Larry Walker: Weeks 3 & 4

After taking all of last week to consider budget proposals by the heads of Georgia’s state agencies, the Senate returned to its usual work refining legislation through the committee process and considering bills on the Senate floor. The most significant event of the week occurred on Tuesday, when I, along with other members of the Majority Caucus, outlined our legislative priorities for the 2022 session. The four concepts covered by these bills represent areas that in which all Georgians should have a vested interest, covering issues including workforce development, public safety, education and data security. As the Majority Caucus Vice Chairman, I believe these proposals are not only needed, but will only improve quality of life for all Georgians.

Baseball Hall of Fame recognizes Larry Walker and Colorado Rockies among the greats

Missing the postseason can make a season unforgettable. If that were always true, fans of the Seattle Mariners would still be wondering where the time has gone during the last 20 years of their life. A season under .500 may also constitute such a claim; however, so much would have been lost for the Colorado Rockies in 1994, 2006, 2008…
