Senate Majority Leader creates policy group

ATLANTA -- Georgia Senate Majority Leader Chip Rogers (R-Woodstock) has created a special policy group that will help research and craft legislation based on the best ideas from other states and the "Solution Summits" currently being held around Georgia.

"Finding the best ideas for Georgia is a year-long process," Rogers said. "We are committed to working directly with Georgia citizens and our counterparts in other states to identify the most beneficial policy ideas. It is important that we as a Senate take a proactive, not reactive approach to policy."

The group is comprised of Rogers and four other senators:

* Jim Butterworth (R-Cornelia)
* Bill Hamrick (R-Carrollton)
* Josh McKoon (R-Columbus)
* Mitch Seabaugh (R-Sharpsburg)

"Each Senator appointed brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the table when focusing on Georgia law and public policy," Rogers said. "Their leadership in the Senate is a huge asset and I'm very honored to work alongside them."

The policy group, in conjunction with the Georgia Solution Summits, will be a sounding board for policy and issues that are generated during the state tour of Solution Summits.
