An internal website created by a state lawmaker is being credited with helping Georgia House members during the most recent legislative session. The website developed by state Rep. Mike Dudgeon tracks changes to a bill while in committee or under consideration in the state Senate. The website is an example of national efforts to use technology to streamline the legislative process.
A House panel has approved a bill that would pave the way for stores in Georgia to sell alcohol on Sundays. The House Regulated Industries Committee approved the measure Wednesday. A similar bill has already cleared a key Senate panel.
