Legislative Day 19 - February 15, 2012

This is the 19th legislative day of the Georgia general assembly...

Coming up on prime time lawmakers, inspired by the shocking disappearance and death of Caylee Anthony, legislation is introduced making it a felony to fail to report a missing child.

Republicans and Democrats work behind the scenes to bring a passable charter schools bill back to the House Foor, even as a new charter schools bill is introduced in the senate.

A bill making a second DUI conviction with a child in the car a felony gets a hearing in Senate Committee.

A topic many will find shocking, human trafficking, is a growing problem in Georgia. We'll be talking about pending legislation with Senator Charlie Bethel of Dalton and U.S. Attorney Sally Yates.

No one will want to miss this revealing discussion.
