Legislative Success!

On April 19, 2012, Governor Nathan Deal signed HB 434 into law.  Many years of work went into the passage of this bill, which affects the ability of social workers to diagnose.  We thank our lobbyist, Wendi Clifton, Katie M. Dempsey, R-Dist. 13 who sponsored the bill, and all of our members who answered the call to action and directly contacted your elected officials.  Our voice matters!
