2022 LEGISLATIVE SESSION EDITION
Voices for Georgia’s Children followed 273 pieces of child-relevant legislation through the Capitol this session. Dubbed “The Year of Mental Health,” 2022 saw significant investments in behavioral health, as well as retaining state employees and restoring previous budget cuts to education. The House and Senate Education Committees moved the year’s most contentious legislation through its ranks while legislators looked to tackle Georgia’s maternal mortality rate with a particular focus on moms and babies.
What follows is Voices for Georgia’s Children’s distillation of the
2022 Legislative Session: Top Issues for Children and Families.
