The Georgia General Assembly has earned a reputation for being one of America’s most conservative legislative bodies.
When Republicans outnumber Democrats by two-to-one in the state Senate and House of Representatives, you wouldn’t expect otherwise.
You would still be surprised at some of the bills that were seriously considered during this year’s session. A number of these measures were actually very liberal in their methods and goals.
For example, SB 318 allows bars and taverns to open on Sunday if St. Patrick’s Day happens to fall on a Monday, as it does this year.
