Welcome to the Georgia State Senate!

President Pro Tempore David Shafer

Welcome to the official website of the Georgia State Senate.  This website will provide you with a look at the work of the State Senate and help you become more informed about participating in Georgia's government.  Here, you will find information on Georgia's senators, legislation pending before the Senate, meeting notices, and other insight into the legislative process.  I invite you to explore this website and to visit the Senate during our legislative session to learn how legislation is passed and how your elected officials represent you.

Your 56 senators work tirelessly to represent the interests of Georgia's residents, from the mountains to the coast, and everywhere in between.  As stewards of your taxpayer dollars, we strive to pass a balanced budget each year that is both fiscally responsible and reflective of your needs.  We are also constantly working in areas such as education, transportation, economic development, healthcare, and public safety to craft legislation that meets the needs of all Georgians.  In addition to the 15 Fortune 500 companies headquartered in Georgia, such as AGCO, Home Depot, Coca-Cola, UPS, and Aflac, we continue to welcome new businesses, relocations, and expansions across our state.

I have served in the Georgia State Senate for over a decade, and it is my honor to serve you as the President Pro Tempore.  All comments, questions, and ideas are welcome.  Please do not hesitate to contact or visit us.
