COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM)
It is a busy and heated week for Georgia lawmakers as the House casts their votes on the state's budget and major bills. Governor Deal must now put his stamp of approval on or cast aside multiple bills the House passed Tuesday.
"Our job is to get them to the governor's desk and his job is to sign," said House Representative Calvin Smyre. Smyre explains that many bills have one more step to cross the finish line into becoming Georgia law as they still need final approval from the state's leader.
