Broadaway did not seek reelection.[3] Gazaway serves on these House committees: (1) City, County, and Local Government, (2) Judiciary, and (3) Rules.[2] A conservative Republican, Gazaway voted to ban abortions for sex-selection and supported the establishment of certain restrictions on abortion providers.
