The passage of the American Recovery & Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009 created a large pool of funds for various projects to "stimulate" the economy, and many companies are now considering entering into contractual relationships with the federal government as contractors or subcontractors.

On February 16, 2005, Governor Sonny Perdue signed into law the Tort Reform Act of 2005. At the time, the sweeping legislation was touted by its supporters as necessary in order to fix all that ailed the tort compensation system, especially given the impression that the system was in a crisis with too many frivolous lawsuits and too many sensational "runaway" verdicts. Perhaps because of the political environment, much of the Act was never discussed publicly and most citizens, including most lawyers, did not understand what was passed.
