ATLANTA - The Georgia Supreme Court on Monday upheld a state law requiring voters to show identification before they cast ballots, dismissing objections from Democrats who contended lawmakers had no proof when they approved the new rules that anyone had tried to vote illegally.
The court's 6-1 decision found that no voter has been disenfranchised by the 2006 law, despite claims by the Democratic Party of Georgia that the law creates an undue burden on the poor, the disabled and minorities. The decision, written by Justice Hugh Thompson, concluded that the law was a "minimal, reasonable, and nondiscriminatory restriction."
ATLANTA - Gov. Nathan Deal said Monday he is revamping his plans to cut the state's prekindergarten program to half-day after an outcry from parents and teachers.
The program will remain a full day but the school year will be cut from 180 days to 160 days, and class sizes will increase by two students to 22 each, Deal said. The moves will allow the state to cut $54 million from the cash-strapped program while adding 2,000 slots, which will put a dent in the 10,000-student waiting list.
