FACT CHECK: SB 226 isn’t dead.
My opponent clearly doesn’t understand the legislative process…
The process operates on a two-year cycle: where a bill ends up at the end of the first year’s session is where the bill is picked up again at the start of the second year’s session.
My opponent falsely claims I “killed” SB 226. The bill passed the Senate (see vote here: https://www.legis.ga.gov/legislation/59932). It was assigned and will be picked up again by the House Judicial Non-civil Committee at the start of the upcoming session -- SB 226 didn’t die.
I have been clear: obscene materials have no place in our schools. During the upcoming session, I will be working with policymakers to get legislation to address this issue across the finish line and signed into law.
Bills must pass both chambers of the legislature (Senate and House) and typically take two years to pass (just look at the Turnaround Office reform legislation or the legislation allowing retired teachers to teach in high need fields).
