SB 491 Transparency Act, Absentee Ballot, and Brandishing Guns in Public

This is crossover week when bills cross from one house to the other and when things move very quickly. We will do our best to keep you apprised of issues. Please keep up with rapid response requests on our public Facebook page.

On Friday, March 6, 2020, Sen. Elena Parent held a press conference to introduce The Transparency Act, a bill to ensure that the legislative process for drawing of the legislative maps be fair and conducted in public.

Speaking in favor of this important legislation were Rep. Matthew Wilson, Andrea Young – Executive Director of the ACLU of Georgia, Cindy Battles with Common Cause Georgia, and Lindsey Hodgson with Fair Districts Georgia.

Jerry Gonzalez – Executive Director of Georgia Association of Elected Officials (GALEO), and representatives for Coalition For The People’s Agenda and Advancing Justice were also present.

You can view the press conference here.
Senate Bill 491 – “Transparency Act”

We want to continue to make calls on the dangerous bill being proposed on Absentee Ballots – see the explainer here from Fair Fight.

Again, continue to make calls regarding the bill that would allow guns to be publicly brandished. Bad idea in so many ways. See the call to action here.
