The below is a summary of the Bills and Resolutions impacting prosecutors or the criminal justice system that passed during the 2013 Session of the Georgia General Assembly and, in the case of Bills, were approved by the Governor.
We have provided a brief analysis by the contributing authors for each of the 71 Bills and Resolutions that passed. These summaries are intended to give the reader an idea of what is contained in the new law; they are not a substitute for reading the actual text of the Bill. In a few instances where the authors concluded that the legislative short title adequately described the contents of the Bill or Resolution, no summary is provided.
The "As Passed" versions of the Bills that have been approved by the Governor are available online at: http://www.legis.ga.gov/Legislation/en-US/SignedByGov.aspx
