As lawmakers prepare to head back to the state Capitol this month, they already have an idea of the bills they will be working to pass. For Representative Wendell Willard, R-Sandy Springs, this session will be about civil forfeiture reform.
Gov. Nathan Deal has announced that he will not appoint a panel to consider the suspension of Clayton County Sheriff Victor Hill. Hill has been indicted on 32 felony charges stemming from a prior term he served as sheriff from 2005 to 2008. He maintains that the charges are politically motivated.
