  1. At the home page, under local changes, it says "Georgia: Locality deleted, Pre-emption Law updated". What has changed?

    Locality Deleted: Gwinnett County has started using digital fingerprints and is now following the law. The localities section is where I keep the counties that I have confirmation they are not following the law. Since they are now following the law, the name was removed.

    SB 175 that was passed last year (the one that removed the GCIC from a handgun Background check and $5 fee also moved the preemption code from 16-11-184 to 16-11-173 with a slight change in pre-emption wording. It went into effect last year but the Georgia Code online just now updated for bills passed last year.
