Some members of the Georgia business community are reacting to the expanded “religious liberty” bill that made it through the state legislature Wednesday. The “Free Exercise Protection Act,” HB 757, would allow faith-based organizations to deny services to same-sex couples.
A bill allowing more patients to use Medical Marijuana easily passed the Georgia House today. The legislation was stripped of major provisions last week after intense debate.
The bill originally sought to allow in-state cultivation of Medical Marijuana in Georgia, but it was gutted by legislators who said it wasn’t practical. Representative Allen Peake, the bill’s sponsor, says he’s disappointed the bill didn’t do more.
