Representative Roger Bruce has authored countless legislation. During the 2017 Legislative session, Rep. Bruce had two major bills that he believed would 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 created a department that ensured equity for all minority and women owned business in the State of Georgia. The second piece of legislation called for voters to cast their ballot at any precinct in their home county on Election Day.
