The Senate discussed various topics, from military mental health to citrus growers. Sen. Donzella Jones (D—Atlanta) dedicated HB 373 to first responders, a state holiday for invaluable community service since 9/11. In the House, a long face-off over SB 44, which increases mandatory minimums for gang recruitment. Democrats worry this measure will harm youth and minorities.
