During his first two terms in the Georgia House of Representatives, Jeff sponsored legislation to protect Georgia’s water resources from the dangers of coal ash contamination; worked to protect the integrity of Georgia’s voter system by stopping the issuance of drivers licenses to individuals without “lawful status” to be in our state, and worked to stem the flow of the millions of dollars that leave our state each year at the hands of human traffickers, drug dealers, gamblers and others; plus having worked on many other important legislative initiatives.
