This was a single vote that encompassed four local bills. Local bills are bills sponsored by a county delegation, typically on behalf of local government, and are rarely opposed as long as the delegation presenting is in agreement.

SB 190 - Juvenile Court of Newton County; intake services; transfer to Georgia Department of Juvenile Justice pursuant to code section 15-11-69 of the OCGA
