On June 8, Governor Sonny Perdue (R) signed Senate Bill 308 into law.
SB308 will reform
Unfortunately, Governor Perdue vetoed Senate Bill 291, which would have allowed a person lawfully licensed to carry a firearm the right to carry in all non-secure areas of airports, as well as while dropping off or picking up passengers at an airport. Also included in the bill was a provision that would make the license renewal process much easier. Instead of the licensee having to remember to renew, the probate court would have been required to send out renewal notices 90 days before expiration.
