A Republican lawmaker wants to allow prosecutors to bring charges against parents who do not quickly report missing children. Rep. B.J. Pak of Lilburn filed a bill Tuesday called "Caylee Anthony's Law." It was inspired by the acquittal last year in Florida of Casey Anthony on murder charges.
Republican lawmakers drew redistricting maps this summer that solidify their majority in the state legislature. But Georgia’s changing demographics won’t guarantee that majority forever. If Republicans want to stay in power, they’ll have to woo Blacks, Asians and Latinos. Those are groups that haven’t voted in large numbers for the state’s GOP.
