During the first week of the 2009 legislative session Representative Billy Maddox was selected to serve as deputy whip in the Georgia House of Representatives. House Majority Whip Jan Jones (R-Milton) announced his appointment to the coveted role. As one of only 10 Deputy Whips in the 180-seat House, Rep. Maddox will be responsible for helping to shepherd bills through the legislative process. ’This new responsibility will enable me to be a better servant to my district,’ said Rep. Maddox. ‘As a deputy whip I will be serving Georgia in a better way through the work I’ll be doing with my Republican colleagues in the House. I’m grateful for this new appointment, and I’m excited about getting started.’ This group of representatives is responsible for analyzing and tracking legislation. Because of these responsibilities, this group also serves as a resource for representatives with questions about legislation. ’In a short period of time Rep. Maddox has demonstrated genuine and effective leadership for his district,’ said Rep. Jones. ‘He will be an excellent voice for our caucus in communicating the details of legislation to other representatives.’
