    In Georgia, there was legislation that was passed through the State House of Representatives in 2016 that would identify certain cancers as job related and provide coverage for these injuries; however, it was vetoed by Governor Nathan Deal.  Since that time, leaders within the Senate have worked with local governments to come up with an alternative mechanism for funding.  Read more here.
