SB 1: “The Protect Act- Protecting Georgians Against Terrorism”; revise the definition of domestic terrorism

Voted on Tuesday March 28, 2017

John Pezold's thoughts

I voted NO on SB 1 which amended code section and related to domestic terrorism definitions. The bill was created to punish those who damage infrastructure, however, the language is loose and could potentially punish simple protesters.
