Governor Perdue began Wednesday, August 26 signing the 108 bills on her desk. We will process those, assign Session Law chapter numbers and post them to the web later this morning. The quickest way to find the newly signed bills will be to go here  and scroll to the bottom, newly signed bills will begin with SL 2009-471.  The list of bills on the Governor’s desk will still show those bills as unsigned until a few hours later. I will post a list of bills signed later today. We also expect a large number to be signed today and Friday.
