    State Rep. Al Williams, D-Midway, was recently appointed to a state Special Committee on Economic Growth by Speaker David Ralston, R-Blue Ridge.

Collins, R-Villa Rica, Ginny Ehrhart, R-Marietta, Matthew Gambill, R-Cartersville, Penny Houston, R-Nashville, Chuck Martin, R-Alpharetta, Miriam Paris, D-Macon, Steven Sainz, R-Woodbine, Michael Smith, D-Marietta, Dale Washburn, R-Macon, and Rick Williams, R-Milledgeville.
