Out of committee on Monday, passed the Senate on Tuesday, and it is over at the House this morning set for a committee hearing. This one appears to be on a fast track.
You funning us? It's only had its first reading and Senate committee referral today (Wed).

Where is this information quoted from? It's not on the web page for the bill. I only see it in today's Proposed First Readers list.

Well, regardless I got this response in <2 hours from my state rep:

Great hearing from you!

I highly doubt this bill is going anywhere, but even if it does, it will surely not receive a vote in the GA House.

Thanks,

So then I suppose the city/county will be paying police officers to stand around in every government building in their respective AO? With our tax dollars... OR they could not create problems for law abiding citizens for no damn good reason.

Maybe they are tired of paying to keep license holders out and just want to go back to the magic words?

Trust me, most local governments want to go back to the magic words to keep out lawful carriers. Unfortunately, those magic words don't work to keep out criminals.
