Here's a review of Georgia Senate Bill 6 that I recieved from D.A. King from the Dustin Inman Society.

* Refines and updates the definition of "legal alien status" for purposes of the Department of Driver Services (DDS) issuing a Georgia drivers license. Definition excludes any illegal alien who has been granted any deferred deportation status. Language establishes authority and directs for the DDS Commissioner to share information obtained for the purpose of issuing a drivers license with appropriate governmental authorities.

* Strikes the current language of state law that includes illegal aliens who are beneficiaries of any federal deferred action on deportation in eligibility for a drivers license. Requires aliens applying for a temporary drivers license or state ID card to submit fingerprints with application. Requires DDS to include fingerprint or alternate biological characteristic of temporary license holder on the license or ID card after January 1, 2016.

* Requires DDS to obtain an affidavit from alien applicants for drivers license swearing that applicant is not a recipient of any deferred deportation action grant from the federal government. False statements (felony here) may be punished by a fine of not more than $1,000.00 or by imprisonment for not less than one nor more than five years, or both.

* Increases penalties for driving without being properly licensed, reduces number of convictions of driving without being licensed for offender to be guilty of a felony. With exclusions, including for expired drivers licenses and drivers 15 years old or younger, establishes authority of peace officer to have discretion to order that a vehicle driven by an unlicensed driver be impounded for 60 days.

* Requires the Commissioner of Driver services to participate in the federal E-Verify affiliated and little-known 'RIDE' program.

Firearms - NOTE: Legislative Counsel shares our concern that existing law could allow a deferred action illegal alien to legally obtain a Concealed Carry Permit in Georgia. Language is being prepared to meet that possibility as an addition in committee to SB 6.

Also – North Carolina state election officials say they have discovered 145 names on the voting rolls who are ineligible to vote because they are illegal immigrants who have been granted President Obama's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals status. According to a Winston-Salem Journal report, the State Board of Elections discovered the potential illegal voters when the N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles ran a search for DACA licenses. The 145 DACA recipients whose names appear on the SBOE's voting rolls will be sent letters requesting documentation that they are citizens, the report noted. The Journal notes that it is likely more ineligible people may still remain on the voting rolls.

Sen. Tommie Williams Appointed Chair of the
Senate Transportation Committee

ATLANTA (January 14, 2015) | Sen. Tommie Williams (R – Lyons) has been named chair of the Senate Transportation Committee for the 2015- 2016 legislative term by the Senate Committee on Assignments.

"The network of roads, waterways, bridges, railways and runways are some of Georgia's most valuable resources," said Sen. Williams. "I'm honored Lieutenant Governor Cagle and my colleagues have entrusted me to chair the Senate Transportation Committee as we begin a new legislative term. Our transportation infrastructure has played a defining role in our state's storied history and, together, we can continue our work to maintain our world class reputation while investing in a better future for our children and grandchildren."

The jurisdiction of the Transportation Committee includes legislation relating to highway safety, regulation of intrastate common carriers, including railroads, buses, trucks, vessels, pipelines, and civil aviation. Also included are inland waterways and any other means of transportation.

Sen. Williams was also selected as a member of the Natural Resources and Environment, Judiciary, Appropriations, and Reapportionment and Redistricting Committees.

"I appreciate Sen. Williams taking on these critically important leadership roles in the Georgia Senate. Like all of us, he is committed to building a better Georgia. I look forward to working closely with Sen. Williams during the upcoming session to move our state to a stronger and more prosperous future," said Lt. Governor Casey Cagle.

"The Committee on Assignments worked hard to match every senator to positions where they could best serve the people of Georgia," said President Pro Tempore David Shafer (R-Duluth).ý "I have great confidence in our new committee leadership team."

Once a piece of legislation is introduced in the Senate, it is assigned to a Committee, depending on its topic. If the Committee gives the legislation a "do pass" recommendation, then the proposed law is sent to the Rules Committee for consideration. The appointed chairs will oversee the operation and order of Senate committee meetings, including calling for action on bills, resolutions or other matters assigned to that committee.

The first term of the 153rd Legislative Session of the Georgia General Assembly convened January 12, 2015 at the Georgia State Capitol.

Religious leaders gather outside of the Georgia State Capitol to protest a decision by Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed to terminate Atlanta Fire Chief Kelvin Cochran. Supporters believe the decision was based on religion, while the Mayor contends the decision was about judgement and protocol.

Simon Turner is a daredevil, which is a nicer way to say "lunatic." Recently, he and a pal visited a lava lake inside a volcano and took a break to roast some marshmallows.
