Free Speech In Georgia destroyed by 6 People, ALL 6 are Republicans!
Free Speech and the First Amendment will be tossed aside if HB 142 passes. The GOP in Georgia has evidently gone mad.
From the article and observing the less than 50% rule:

The proposed law requires that any citizen who influences a legislator regarding legislation is a lobbyist subject to a fee of over $300 and stringent reporting requirements. This has few exceptions. In effect, these provisions take away every Georgian’s First Amendment Constitutional Right to petition their government officials throwing it out the window. The proposed law requires that private, unpaid citizens who would never consider themselves “lobbyists” must pay over $300 and subject themselves to stringent reporting requirements and bureaucracy if they wish to communicate or even “influence” any elected official other than one from their own House or Senate district.

In practical terms, that means if you, as a concerned citizen, really want a bill to pass or fail, and its passage depends on a Senate or House member from a neighboring district, you either pay over $300 and register as a lobbyist just to be able to communicate with them, or you better keep your mouth shut and let the legislature pass whatever they want without your input.

Re: Free Speech In Georgia destroyed by 6 People, ALL 6 are Republicans!
I was on the phone with the receptionists and aides that these kooks have answering to their constituents, and can tell you that I was laughed at SEVERAL times for even calling about this.
They 'explained' that the media had spinned it wrong, so, guess what? I read the bill. And it states EXACTLY what the article says it states.
When are these politicians going to realize that they are Not better than us and cannot take away any more of our rights?

The speaker, who announced his proposal at a news conference, was challenged by activist Catherine Davis who asserted, “Because I’m asking you to act ethically, you want to silence me by charging me $300?” As WSB-TV had it, Ralston replied, “I don’t know what the problem with registering is.

"citizen who influences a legislator regarding legislation is a lobbyist subject to a fee of over $300"

Funny i thought bribing public officials was illegal.
And or taking gifts by a public official for political favors was illegal.

And unconstitutional.

I guess being a corrupt pos is ok nowadays.

Okay, jackasses, read the mfeffing ariticle and stop shilling this post, or, are you all really that stupid?
Have you never picked up the phone and called a rep?
Have you never protested an unconstitutional bill?
This bill would cause ANYONE who even calls or stops a rep in the grocery store to discuss a bad bill, to have to register as a lobbyist.
Please just go smoke yourself another fat one and ignore the fact that we are losing our country.

Unless I just read the wrong bill, nowhere does it even mention about paying anything. It does mention in several other places about reporting due to transparency concerns.

If it was at one time in the Bill it has been removed and it was probably added to it to get peoples attention to other important items in the Bill.

Free Speech and the First Amendment will be tossed aside if HB 142 passes. The GOP in Georgia has evidently gone mad.
From the article and observing the less than 50% rule:

The proposed law requires that any citizen who influences a legislator regarding legislation is a lobbyist subject to a fee of over $300 and stringent reporting requirements. This has few exceptions. In effect, these provisions take away every Georgian’s First Amendment Constitutional Right to petition their government officials throwing it out the window. The proposed law requires that private, unpaid citizens who would never consider themselves “lobbyists” must pay over $300 and subject themselves to stringent reporting requirements and bureaucracy if they wish to communicate or even “influence” any elected official other than one from their own House or Senate district.

In practical terms, that means if you, as a concerned citizen, really want a bill to pass or fail, and its passage depends on a Senate or House member from a neighboring district, you either pay over $300 and register as a lobbyist just to be able to communicate with them, or you better keep your mouth shut and let the legislature pass whatever they want without your input.
