New ‘Election Police’ Bill Passes on Sine Die

During yesterday’s chaos, it was very clear that some special or partisan interest wanted Georgia to have its own ‘Election Police’ force, just like Florida. So, now we have one – to the tune of almost $580,000 a year. That’s money that could and should be spent, instead, on things that would improve Georgians’ lives, like school lunches, housing assistance, and economic development programs that create good jobs.

Senate Committee Holds Public Hearing on Georgia’s ‘Election Police’ Bill

A rushed legislative process rarely makes for good public policy. And this bill is being rushed through the legislative process, just like last year’s SB 202 was.

‘Déjà vu all over again’ as the Georgia Senate considers another ‘elections omnibus’

Just like last year, the process has allowed little or no public input -- because if you don’t have a lobbyist, it’s almost impossible to find out what’s going on. It’s both sad and ironic that a bill directly affecting our freedom to vote is being considered using such an opaque process.
