SB 446 amends Code Section 17-6-4 of the OCGA to revise the amount of time a cash bond must go unclaimed from seven years to two years in order to be paid into the general county fund. The bill also states that that this time starts upon the surety's release from liability or the disposition of the case, whichever is earlier.
