Preparing for the 2023 General Assembly
Speaker David Ralston made news regarding PBG's priorities in a speech in Savannah on Septermber 13. We advocate for increasing access to health care and better access to shelter, food, healthcare, employment, and critical safety net services. These were among the initiatives the speaker laid out. From the Sept. 13th edition of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution:
“So, if there’s something you want to talk to me about for next year’s General Assembly, be sure you frame how it will impact opportunity in this state,” Ralston said.
“Will it provide our children a better education? Will it expand access to health care? Will it improve our infrastructure and make us more competitive? Those are the questions I’m going to be asking. That’s where my focus will be next legislative session.”
This is a direct invitation to advocate on these essential issues. In the last session, advocacy like ours contributed to Speaker Ralston’s support for and ultimate passage of the Mental Health Parity Act. Our advocacy makes a difference!
So it’s never too soon to contact your legislators, especially in an election year. Find your state senator and representative’s contact information at https://openstates.org.
