——————————————————————————————————

The final result will likely be determined by a joint conference f the
House and Senate.

GA GOP Speaker Ralston and Lt Gov Geoff Ralston are not supportive of
some of the reforms. Gov Kemp ??? 

GA Chamber of Commerce has come out against the bills!

HB228 which revises GA Drivers Licenses to indicate citizen or non citizen
has not passed. Likely due to the RINO and Chamber of Commerce lobby
for illegal immigrant/slave labor.

No bills were introduced to enable Independent cyber security audits of the voting machines or tabulations centers.

HR1 – Internet Voter Registration


require each state to provide an online voter registration
application that may be completed, submitted, and received by
election officials electronically;


allow registered voters to update their voter registration
information online; and

permit voters without DMV records to register online using electronic copies
of handwritten signatures, secure online signatures, or by providing
a signature upon actually requesting a ballot.

The conservative Heritage Foundation has called many of the bill’s
provisions unconstitutional.

Will require 60 vote to pass the Senate – UNLESS the Filibuster is
eliminated by the DEMS.

H.R. 1 would federalize and micromanage the election process, imposing
unnecessary, unwise, and unconstitutional mandates on the states

It would reverse the decentralization of the American election
process—an essential protection of our liberty and freedom.
