COLUMBUS, Ga. (WTVM) - Georgia state leaders gathered Saturday in Columbus at the Mildred Terry Library to host a legislative town hall meeting.

Senator Ed Harbison, State Representative Calvin Smyre, along with Representatives Carolyn Hughley and Debbie Buckner talked with residents and presented an end of session report, updates on state bills, the state budget and topics like health care, education and police reform - just a few of the things on the table.
