Flag Bill Reported Out of Committee
In the Georgia House of Representatives, S.B. 98 (which would change Georgia’s state flag) was reported out of committee with a “do pass” recommendation. That same day, it received its second reading on the floor. By law, the third and final reading of the bill could not take place until the next legislative day. Immediately following third reading, S.B. 98 would be ready for floor debate and voting.
