Deal to tour state with bill signings


Deal to tour state with bill signings

I can’t remember previous Governors doing this, but apparently Gov. Perdue frequently held bill signings outside of Atlanta.

It’s a great way of bringing Georgia’s state government closer to the people across the state with the added bonus that local media were more likely to cover the bill signings, especially if it is an issue primarily of local interest.

From the Press Release:
