I just saw this on Ballot Access News, my initial thought is, “yeah, right”:
Two ballot access activists in Georgia, Mike Crane and John Dashler, have been making headway lobbying the Georgia legislature. They have found a legislative sponsor for a bill next year to improve ballot access. Also they have been told by the House Committee chairman who would have jurisdiction over the bill that the bill will progress out of his Committee. That is a welcome change from 2006, when that same chairman blocked HB 927.
The chairman of the committee is David Ralston, who was also the sponsor of HB 927.
