State Senate to Vote on Victims’ Rights Constitutional Amendment

From a press release:

The Georgia Senate today will vote on Marsy’s Law, which would elevate crime victims’ rights to the state constitution.

After weeks of negotiating on language, the Judiciary Committee passed the measure sponsored by Sen. John Kennedy (R-Macon) with bipartisan support and by a wide margin.

Marsy’s Law for Georgia supports efforts by Sen. Kennedy to strengthen the protections for victims outlined in the legislation. The constitutional amendment will require a two-thirds vote in both houses and would then go before Georgia voters in the 2018 election.

For those who need background.
