bill text

This bill would allow cities and counties to call for a ballot question on liquor package sales by resolution or ordinance. The bill would also change the petition threshold of 35% of registered voter signatures to 20% of registered voter signatures. Additionally, it would provide uniformity to the referendum process by referencing the Georgia elections code.
