Georgia Justice Project Action Alert #2
Your calls are working! We have been informed that the record restriction language from HB 663 is strongly being considered for inclusion into the Governor’s Criminal Justice Reform package, HB 1176. However, there is likely to be intense, focused pressure on a number of key provisions throughout the weekend and until the revised bill drops early next week. Therefore, we still need your help!
If you have already made a call on behalf of HB 663, please call those officials AGAIN and thank them for working to include HB 663 in HB 1176. If you have NOT made any calls, please do so TODAY or TOMORROW, asking the representatives to assure that HB 663 is included in the Criminal Justice Reform package, HB 1176.
At this point, the most important representatives to call are:
Rep. Rich Golick: (404) 656-5943
Sen. Johnny Grant: (404) 656-0082
Sen. Bill Hamrick: (404) 656-0036
Sen. Mike Jacobs: (404) 656- 0152
Sen Wendell Willard: (404) 656-5125
Rep. Jay Neal: (404) 656-5138 (Please THANK HIM for sponsoring this bill!)
In addition, here are links to the full Judiary Committee list, and a page where you can look up your own legislators. Calls are more effective than email! But email messages are better than doing nothing! Thank you so much for your support at this critical time.
