Representative Roger Bruce has authored countless legislation. Currently, for the 2017 Legislative session, Rep. Bruce has two major bills that he believes will be beneficial to not only the people of District 61 but the citizens of the State of Georgia. The first piece of legislation, HB 21 would create a department that would ensure equity for all minority and women owned business in the State of Georgia. The second piece of legislation would all for voters to cast their ballot at any precinct in their home county on Election Day.
