Georgia’s got a new lobbying law that will cut off lobbyists from giving Georgia’s politicians free college football tickets, starting next year. That should give the towering intellects in our General Assembly enough time to figure out how to game the new system. I have no doubt they’ll come up with something, as some are already hard at work on the matter.
There are unresolved questions. Shafer, R-Duluth, said he wants advice from Statehouse lawyers on whether employees of Georgia’s higher education system are legally considered lobbyists. If they are not lobbyists, they would not be subject to the spending rules.
GATA, Mr. Shafer.
