Our first responders (Police, Firefighters, EMT’s, and Paramedics), are crucial members of our society. I believe that our state should have a formally recognized day which acknowledges their hard, unwavering work. This will be one of the first bills that I plan to introduce as your State Senator.
Update: We are delighted that the United States Senate passed a resolution in October of 2019 supporting this idea. However, as of the date of this writing, the U.S. House of Representatives has not passed the same resolution. We strongly believe that the State of Georgia should pass our own resolution commending the first responders that serve our state.
