ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - In an address to state lawmakers Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal highlighted accomplishments during his first two years in office and identified some important areas going forward.

Deal spoke Tuesday during lunch on the last day of a biennial training conference for lawmakers sponsored by the Carl Vinson Institute of the University of Georgia. The conference aims to provide information and training for new and veteran lawmakers.

Deal listed accomplishments that he said he and legislators were able to reach together, including major tax reform, salvaging the HOPE scholarship program and sweeping criminal justice reform.

Deal said infrastructure projects and education must remain high priorities for the state. He also said the federal health care law as a costly challenge going forward.
