Sen. Butch Miller, R-Gainesville, was elected to serve as Republican Caucus Chair of the Georgia State Senate.
Miller assumes his post with the start of the 152nd Legislative Session of the Georgia General Assembly. The Senate Republican Caucus held leadership elections during a retreat at Little Ocmulgee State Park, where they will also debate and consider caucus rules and proposed Senate rules for the upcoming legislative session.
“I want to thank the previous leadership team, the Lt. Governor and my colleagues in the senate for electing me to serve as the Republican Caucus Chair,” Miller said in a statement. “I am honored and humbled by the trust and confidence of my colleagues, and especially the citizens of the 49th Senate District.”
Miller currently serves as the Governor’s floor leader and will begin serving his first term as caucus chair in January. The Senate Majority Caucus Chair is responsible for working with caucus leaders to develop the caucus agenda, oversee meetings and assist in the development of policy.
