1. The Georgia Bulldogs shatter records in their second straight national championship win.
- The Dawgs won by 58 points, the largest win margin in College Football Playoff history. They're the first back-to-back national champs since Alabama pulled off the feat from 2011 to 2012.
- Gov. Brian Kemp swore in state Rep. Houston Gaines in Los Angeles.
2. The Fulton County special grand jury has ended its investigation into 2020 election interference.
- Judge Robert McBurney will hold a hearing Jan. 24. He'll decide if the jury's report will be made public.
- District Attorney Fani Willis would have to present the investigation's findings to a separate jury before pursuing criminal referrals against any targets.
3. The Legislature has officially set its calendar.
- Speaker Jon Burns says the business of the session will be approached “very respectfully and very deliberately.”
- It could be a sign that the Legislature doesn't want to address too many controversial topics.
