Sen. Vincent Fort Responds to Veto of House Bill 757

ATLANTA (March 28, 2016)  |  Sen. Vincent Fort (D – Atlanta) has released the following statement regarding Gov. Nathan Deal’s decision to veto House Bill 757:

“I am relieved that Governor Deal did the right thing and vetoed HB 757, a bill that would have caused great moral and economic harm to our state.  Now that we have put this legislation in the rear view mirror, I hope that the General Assembly will rededicate itself to focusing on expanding opportunity for all Georgians by raising the minimum wage, expanding Medicaid and improving mass transit.”
