“I appreciate the Senate Judiciary Committee, under the leadership of Chairman Bill Hamrick, recommending 'Do Pass' on HB 397, which will enhance government transparency in Georgia,” said Olens. "I am also grateful to Representative Jay Powell and the many stakeholders who have assisted in strengthening the bill.
