You can almost see those championship trophies lining the wall in Butts-Mehre now, can’t you?
Georgia’s public college athletic associations now have far more time to respond to open records requests under legislation signed into law Monday by Gov. Nathan Deal despite an uproar from First Amendment advocates.
The legislation, Senate Bill 323, allows the athletic departments at UGA, Georgia Tech and other state colleges to wait 90 days before responding to Open Records Act requests. Athletic associations, like all state agencies, previously had three days to acknowledge the requests.
Deal’s office did not immediately comment on his decision to sign the legislation.
Thereby proving that Deal is the only smart one in the bunch on this.
