A copy of the Ten Commandments could be posted in all Georgia government buildings and schools under a bill passed unanimously Tuesday by House lawmakers.
Rep. Tommy Benton, R-Jefferson, is seeking to expand a 2006 law that already permits the passage from the Old Testament to be displayed in judicial buildings and courthouses when accompanied by other historical documents deemed to have influenced the U.S. legal system.
So what else has Georgia’s General Assembly been up to?
*Car owners could get “In God We Trust” stickers free of charge under a bill passed Tuesday by the state Senate, which adopted the measure after initial plans to make the motto mandatory on all Georgia license plates fell short in committee.
*A bill to limit mass picketing outside private residences has garnered vocal opposition from community leaders, who issued a call Thursday to organize and defeat it.
That last bill was drafted by Sen. Chamber of Commerce.
