AUDIO: Governor signs nine bills by local legislator
Hard work and a cooperative attitude may be paying off for a local legislator. Some would say state representative Amy Loudenbeck of Clinton is having a pretty good week. The governor signed nine of the bills she authored into law. Not bad for a legislator only in her second term. The Republican says she's most proud of Out-of-Home Care. She says it'll provide support to help better educate and train foster children when they become adults. Other measures include strengthening laws to protect human trafficking victims, improved efficiencies for free health care clinics, and additional resources for families needing shelter care services.
