This legislation establishes regulations for electric assisted bicycle, "e-bikes" and defines three classes of e-bikes. E-bikes would follow the same rules of the road as human powered bikes and local governments would have the authority to allow or restrict the use of e-bikes on bicycle paths or shared paths where bicycles are permitted.

2020/06/19 Report General County Government Kathleen Bowen
This legislation, titled the "Georgia Pandemic Business Immunity Act", seeks to provide liability protection from COVID-19 related lawsuits. County government employees and county government facilities are included as being afforded liability protection as long as those parties are acting in good faith to comply with guidelines issued by the Governor, the Georgia Department of Public Health, or the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Immunity would not apply where the government has acted recklessly or intentionally to cause harm.
 
Immunity protection is only in effect upon the Governor issuing an executive order declaring that a state of emergency or disaster exists due to COVID-19. Such immunity shall apply to causes of action that occur between the date of the declaration of a state of emergency or disaster and two years after the date of the last executive order issued by the Governor.

2020/02/28 Report Code Enforcement General County Government Land Use/Zoning Todd Edwards
This legislation preempts local government land use practices by redefining "family" in state law, mandating an opening in local zoning codes to permit all forms of co-housing, boarding houses and student housing in single-family neighborhoods statewide.  It would supersede all local ordinances and redefine "family" to include any group of people, of any size, living together.  ACCG believes that local governments should be able to define family for residential areas in order to protect the integrity of single family neighborhoods.
