City of Stonecrest Mayor Jason Lary, businessman Bill Allen of the AEI StartUP Factory in Stonecrest and Dr. Carroll Braddy of Now Faith Apostolic Ministries were among the invited guests who kicked off today’s special legislative session of the Georgia General Assembly. Dr. Braddy gave the invocation.

Gov. Nathan Deal issued the call to convene a special legislative session to amend the budget to provide emergency funding to state agencies and local governments impacted by Hurricane Michael.
“Many of Georgia’s communities were severely impacted by Hurricane Michael as families, businesses and farmers sustained significant financial losses,” said Deal. “In response, I have asked the General Assembly to reconvene and take immediate action to provide relief funding and spur economic recovery for the affected areas. Our state appropriations need to be amended to minimize financial losses following the storm and to ensure Georgia’s continued prosperity in the coming months.”
