COMPILER'S NOTE General Acts and Resolutions of the 1997 session of the General Assembly of Georgia will be found in Volume I beginning at page 1. Proposed amendments to the Constitution of the State of Georgia will be found in Volume I beginning at page 1711. Local and Special Acts and Resolutions will be found in Volume II beginning at page 3501. Home rule actions by counties and consolidated governments and by municipalities filed in the Office of the Secretary of State between March 11, 1996, and April 18, 1997, are printed in Volume II beginning at pages 4623 and 4717, respectively. There are no numbered pages between page 1717, the last page of Volume I, and page 3501, the first page of Volume II. This allows both volumes to be compiled and printed simultaneously. In order to eliminate the need for hand stitching of thick books and to reduce costs, type size has been reduced slightly, the index and other material is now in a separate volume, and future Volumes I or II, or both, may be divided into two or more books. Page numbers will run consecutively between books in the same volume. Indexes; lists of Acts, Bills, and Resolutions and their Georgia Laws page numbers; material related to courts; population charts; lists of members of the General Assembly; referendum results; the Governor's proclamation on ratification or rejection of Constitutional amendments at the 1996 general election; and the Governor's veto message are printed in Volume III. Indexes cover material in both Volumes I and II. The tabular indexes list matter by broad categories. The general index is a detailed alphabetical index by subject matter. When possible, general Acts have been indexed by reference to the titles of the Official Code of Georgia Annotated which they amend and the tabular index contains a list of Code sections which have been amended, enacted, or repealed. Each Act is preceded by the Act number assigned by the Governor and the House Bill or Senate Bill number which it was given when it was introduced in the General Assembly. Each Resolution is preceded by the Resolution Act number assigned by the Governor and the House Resolution or Senate Resolution number. Each Act or Resolution which was signed by the Governor is followed by the approval date on which it was signed by the Governor.

STATE OF GEORGIA OFFICE OF THE GOVERNOR ATLANTA 30334-0900 May 2, 1997 ZELL MILLER GOVERNOR Honorable Pierre Howard Lieutenant Governor 240 State Capitol Atlanta, Georgia 30334 Dear Lieutenant Governor Howard: I have vetoed Senate Bill 349 which was passed by the General Assembly of Georgia at the 1997 Regular Session. Article III, Section V, Paragraph XIII of the Georgia Constitution requires that I transmit such bills to you, together with a list of reasons for such vetoes. The bill and corresponding reasons for its veto are attached. With kindest regards, I remain Sincerely, Zell Miller ZM/mcc Attachment cc: Honorable Thomas B. Murphy, Speaker of the House of Representatives Honorable Robert E. Rivers, Jr., Clerk, House of Representatives Honorable Frank Eldridge, Secretary of the Senate Honorable Sewell R. Brumby, Legislative Counsel Honorable Michael J. Bowers, Attorney General Honorable Lewis Massey, Secretary of State VETO NUMBER 1 House Bill 283 authorizes ticket brokering in Georgia. With one significant exception, the bill makes it unlawful for any person other than a ticket broker to resell or offer for resale any ticket of admission in excess of its face value to athletic contests, concerts, theater performances, or other entertainments, amusements, or exhibitions. An exception to the ticket brokering requirement actually would legalize the scalping of a ticket for an event by an individual ticket holder who is the original purchaser of the ticket as long as that person does not sell the ticket on the property where the event is to be held. Current state law prohibits ticket scalping by everyone. This law has been in existence in one form or another since 1966. In a 1979 decision

Page CCCXXVIII

upholding the constitutionality of the ban on ticket scalping, the Georgia Supreme Court held that the prohibition on the practice of scalping tickets is a reasonable regulation fulfilling a legitimate state interest. State v. Major, 243 Ga. 255 (1979). House Bill 283 not only legalizes ticket scalping but also creates an unfair monopoly for ticket brokers. This bill, like one which I vetoed for similar reasons in 1995, fails to protect consumers and is unfair to promoters and artists. The potential problems contained in House Bill 283 include the following: A requirement that bond be posted in the amount of $150,000. This amount is insufficient to protect consumers should a ticket broker fail to provide tickets or abscond with the proceeds. There is no penalty for a ticket broker who fails to deliver a paid-for ticket unless the ticket broker has guaranteed in writing the delivery of the ticket. However, somewhat incredibly, there is no requirement that a ticket broker provide any written guarantee that a ticket be delivered, thereby creating a significant loophole which could greatly harm the ticket-buying public. While the bill purports to regulate ticket brokers, it legalizes ticket scalping by permitting other individuals who purchase tickets for personal use to resell those tickets for any price without regulation. This will in fact increase, rather then decrease, consumer confusion and complaints. For the protection of consumers, performers, and athletes, I hereby veto House Bill 283. VETO NUMBER 2 House Bill 313 establishes the Miller County Recreation Authority, a public entity that will own and operate a golf course project in Miller County. After passage, the author of the bill discovered a defect in the effective date of the bill and requested a veto. The correct effective date with the duplicate provisions creating the Miller County Recreation Authority was placed in House Bill 806, which I signed on March 25, 1997. Therefore, at the request of the author, I hereby veto House Bill 313 on technical grounds. VETO NUMBER 3 House Bill 528 is an unfortunate conglomeration of inconsistent, contradictory, and unconstitutional provisions which renders the bill legally flawed.

Page CCCXXIX

As originally introduced, House Bill 528 amends Georgia's Groundwater Use Act by lowering to 50,000 gallons per day the amount of ground water which may be withdrawn in locations that have been designated by the director of the Environmental Protection Division as special ground water management areas. However, during the last two days of the 1997 session, amendments were added to this legislation which, when combined, are irreconcilable, raise considerable constitutional problems, and are unnecessary to achieve their purported objectives. On day 39 of the session, four amendments were added to this bill on the Senate floor. Three of these amend the exact same paragraph (7) of Code Section 12-5-23.2, without repealing any language contained in any of them. To compound the problem, on the 40th and last day, the House passed another amendment, later agreed to by the Senate, which conflicts with the prior Senate amendments but in similar fashion fails to repeal any of them. Adding to this confusion is the fact that House Bill 528 creates an unconstitutional special law and has no general repealer clause which is contained in every bill that passes the General Assembly, which causes it to conflict with existing law. One of the Senate amendments, codified as the first Section 1A of the bill, has serious constitutional and policy flaws. It allows any capital outlay project funded by the excise tax on rooms, lodgings, and accommodations or any project of the Atlanta Housing Authority to connect to a sewer system regardless of whether a sewer moratorium in effect. The City of Atlanta is currently under a moratorium for sewer connections in accordance with a 1996 Act of the General Assembly due to violations of the Water Quality Control Act. See O.C.G.A. 12-5-23.2(c) (6). The Senate amendment just mentioned was meant to provide an exception to the 1996 Act so that an arena could be constructed for the Atlanta Hawks basketball team as well as additional projects of the Atlanta Housing Authority. However, there are at least two legal problems with this amendment. First, in conflict with additional amendments (see below), the reference to any capital outlay project without any time limitation could apply to an unlimited number of projects for an indefinite period of time other than just the Hawks arena. Second, the specific reference to the Atlanta Housing Authority creates a special law applicable solely to one housing authority in conflict with the general law contained in the same legislation, thereby violating the constitutional prohibition on special laws. See Ga. Const. 1983, Art. III, Sec. VI, Para. IV(a). A second Senate amendment, codified as the second Section 1A of House Bill 528, allows additional sewer connections for which permits were issued prior to the imposition of a moratorium on additional sewer

Page CCCXXX

connections. This amendment conflicts with the previous amendment by being more restrictive, applying only to permits issued prior to the moratorium. On the last day of the session, the House added yet another amendment to deal with the Hawks arena and housing authority projects in Section 1 of House Bill 528. This amendment creates an exception from the sewer moratorium only for certain capital outlay projects started prior to July 1, 1998, or for any public housing authority project so long as the additional connections do not cause the total quantity of sewage to exceed a specified amount. By failing to repeal any of the previous amendments, the House amendment directly conflicts with the two Senate amendments just reviewed. In fact, none of these amendments are needed to allow the Hawks arena to be constructed or to permit particular Atlanta Housing Authority projects to be connected to the sewer system. A permit was issued for the Hawks facility prior to the imposition of the sewer moratorium. EPD previously informed the City of Atlanta that projects permitted by the city for sewer connection prior to the time any moratorium is in effect may proceed, even if the project is constructed or occupied during the pendency of the moratorium. Similarly, EPD has informed the city that the moratorium applies only to new connections, not to replacement connections like some proposed projects of the Atlanta Housing Authority. There was yet one more amendment, codified as the third Section 1A of House Bill 528, which requires EPD to request that the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency assist in devising strategies to prevent future discharges of waste waters into the Chattahoochee River which will violate permitted phosphorus levels. The Georgia EPD is delegated the authority to administer the waste water discharge program required by the federal Clean Water Act, which includes enforcement of discharge permit limits. In addition, EPD has agreed to work jointly with the federal EPA on enforcement of discharge permit limits within the City of Atlanta. The original intent of this bill, which is to lower the groundwater permit threshold under certain circumstances, may be a laudable goal. Unfortunately, due to the manner in which amendments were added to this bill during the closing hours of the 1997 session, that intent has been offset by the legal morass presented by the final version of this legislation. EPD can still achieve the objective of the original legislation through the permitting process of the Georgia Safe Drinking Water Act, O.C.G.A. 12-5-170, et seq. To summarize, House Bill 528 has multiple provisions which expressly conflict with and contradict one another, no general repealer clause, and one provision which is likely to be held unconstitutional. The intent of the bill can be accomplished through existing law. For all these reasons, I have no choice but to veto House Bill 528.

VETO NUMBER 4 House Bill 1013 changes procedures concerning the appellate review of pretrial proceedings in death penalty cases and, in so doing, may operate to increase the number of death penalty appeals and create further delays in this appellate process than already exist. Current law provides for the trial judge to conduct a hearing to determine whether an interim review by the Georgia Supreme Court of pretrial rulings in a death penalty case is appropriate to serve the ends of justice, and in doing so the judge must balance whether the delay caused by any such review outweighs the need for the review. Once the trial judge files a report certifying that all pretrial proceedings have been concluded and the case is ready for trial, the prosecutor and the defendant may each file a report identifying areas where reversible error may have occurred with the clerk of the superior court, including an application for appeal with respect to any order entered in the case. House Bill 1013 creates two potential problems. First, the bill adds language to current law to expand the issues that could be raised in the intermediate appellate review of a death penalty case. Second, the amendatory language in the bill arguably may create a right for prosecutors or defendants to appeal any and all pretrial decisions directly to the Georgia Supreme Court without any determination by the trial court that such an appeal would be appropriate to serve the ends of justice. Because of the uncertainty in the language contained in the bill, which could create additional appeals in death penalty cases in spite of a determination by the trial court that an interim appeal is not appropriate, the Attorney General has recommended that House Bill 1013 be vetoed. For the above reasons, I hereby veto House Bill 1013. VETO NUMBER 5 House Bill 417 allows an income tax credit of $500 for individuals who purchase new single-family homes containing specified accessibility features, or a tax credit of the lower of $125 or the actual cost of each added accessibility feature for a modification to an existing single-family home, up to a total credit of $500. There is no requirement that any such accessibility feature actually be used by someone physically challenged who would receive the benefit of the feature. This bill will create a significant revenue loss for the State of Georgia without any guaranteed benefit for anyone actually needing and using an accessibility feature. If ten percent of Georgia's new home purchases were eligible for the $500 credit and only one accessibility feature was added in one percent of existing homes, the new revenue loss to the state in tax year 1998 would be approximately $2.6 million for the new purchases and $2.7

Page CCCXXXII

million for the existing home installation, for a total revenue loss of $5.3 million. None of these estimated costs were included in House Bill 204, the Fiscal Year 1998 budget act. Therefore, due to the negative financial impact upon state revenues, I hereby veto House Bill 417. VETO NUMBER 6 House Bill 517 provides, in part, for an income tax credit for qualified caregiving expenses of the lesser of $500 or ten percent of the qualified expenses on behalf of family members at least 62 years of age, beginning in January, 1999. The estimated costs of this tax credit for the first applicable fiscal year are between $4 and $6 million, with an additional incremental cost for subsequent years. This amount of money would have to be found in what promises to be an extremely tight budget for a future fiscal year. It is fiscally irresponsible to impose such a significant impact upon revenue in advance of a budget which has yet to be proposed. Unless the estimated costs of this credit are included in the budget act for which it is proposed, the credit will result in the budget being out of balance. Due to this negative financial impact upon state revenues, I hereby veto House Bill 517. VETO NUMBER 7 House Bill 866 creates the Georgia Golf Hall of Fame Authority. The Authority would consist of 15 members who also serve on the current Georgia Golf Hall of Fame Board. The Authority would be empowered to receive, generate, and administer revenue toward the operation of the Georgia Golf Hall of Fame, contract with other governmental entities, and accept federal loans and grants. Significantly, the Authority would be permitted to issue revenue bonds to finance some or all of the construction and related expenses concerning the Georgia Golf Hall of Fame. The legislation requires the Authority to establish a debt sinking fund using the Authority's revenues as a pledge for the issuance of any revenue bonds, and stipulates that these bonds shall not be deemed to constitute a debt of the State of Georgia or a pledge of the faith and credit of the state. The reasons for vetoing this bill are financial in nature. It presently is unclear whether the Georgia Golf Hall of Fame will require an operating subsidy similar to the Music Hall of Fame Authority or other state authorities. The Georgia Golf Hall of Fame Board itself is receiving $85,000 in state funds in Fiscal Year 1997 and is budgeted to receive the same amount in Fiscal Year 1998.

Page CCCXXXIII

In addition, the Board under current law can receive state general obligation bond financing and other financing for projects related to the Georgia Golf Hall of Fame. The need to create a separate state entity to issue revenue bonds for this same purpose is questionable, particularly when the revenue potential of the planned facility to support its operation and any revenue bonds issued is unproven. For these reasons, I hereby veto House Bill 866. VETO NUMBER 8 House Bill 378 amends the Georgia Business Expansion Support Act (BEST) of 1994 in several ways which undermines the intent of the BEST legislation and will result in a revenue loss for the state. Current law provides that businesses in any industry in counties designated as Tier ` (the 53 poorest counties in Georgia) prior to January 1, 1994, are eligible for a jobs tax credit until the statute's sunset date of December 31, 1997. Thereafter, only businesses in specific qualifying industries, such as manufacturing, warehousing and distribution, telecommunications, tourism, processing, and research and development, will be eligible for the credit. House Bill 378 would remove the sunset date for the special credit for Tier 1 counties, apply the credit only to the 40 poorest counties, and open the credit up to any type of business. The purpose of the jobs tax credit in the BEST legislation is to provide an incentive for businesses to locate or expand in Georgia or in a certain group of counties rather than anywhere else. With the removal of the sunset provision, all businesses, including retail establishments, in any of the 40 poorest counties could qualify for the jobs tax credit. This legislation originally was passed and has been expanded over the past few years to provide Georgia with locational incentives similar to competing states in the Southeast. Retail businesses are not a part of this incentive package since the decision on where to locate such stores is based almost exclusively on the market demand in a particular location. Therefore, giving a jobs tax credit to such an industry is no more than a gratuity to a business which is going to base its decision to locate based on other factors. In addition, the low wages paid by retail establishments do not usually produce enough taxable income to the state which is sufficient to offset the $2500 jobs tax credit. Consequently, this bill would result in a revenue loss to the state. Consequently, due to the financial impact upon state revenues, I hereby veto House bill 378. VETO NUMBER 9 House Bill 383 amends the Quality Basic Education Act to include attorneys' fees and costs of litigation in the reasonable and necessary

Page CCCXXXIV

expenses incurred in educating [a] child in facilities operated by the Department of Human Resources or the Department of Children and Youth Services for which the state reimburses local school systems under the QBE formula. This has a potential of an adverse impact upon the state education budget. The treatment and education of students in state facilities can be a very litigious area. While it is impossible to estimate the extent of attorneys' fees and litigation costs which the state would have to reimburse under this legislation, approval of the bill would result in less incentive for local school systems to reach a settlement in many cases before they go to court if those local systems are not themselves responsible for the costs of litigation. In addition, amendments were added to House Bill 383 in the Senate to allow middle schools to offer foreign language instruction to all students (rather than those who score at or above the sixtieth percentile on a national normed test of reading achievement) and to permit school security personnel in all counties to be authorized to carry a weapon (rather than just those counties having a population of at least 100,000). These are major policy changes which received only limited discussion and are totally unrelated to the original purpose of the bill. Based on the budgetary implications of state funding for legal fees expended by local school systems as a part of the necessary expenses for the education of children in certain state facilities, I hereby veto House Bill 383. VETO NUMBER 10 House Bill 465 has negative budget implications while it attempts to mandate by statute what the Department of Medical Assistance is permitted to cover under the state's Medicaid plan. The bill authorizes the Department of Medical Assistance to amend the state plan for medical assistance to reimburse institutions for mental disease for services provided to individuals under age 21 and over age 65. The bill also limits expenditures for such services to 1996 funding levels for inpatient behavioral health services, adjusted for inflation. There are two reasons for vetoing this legislation. First, the budget neutrality language which caps spending at 1996 funding levels for inpatient behavioral services is unclear and ambiguous. The bill does not specify if the 1996 funding level relates to Medicaid-covered services or Department of Human Resources mental health services, nor does it specify whether this level includes expenditures for both primary and secondary diagnoses. As a result, the funding level language in House Bill 465 raises more questions then it answers and potentially has significant implications on the amount of funding for all mental health services.

Page CCCXXXV

Second, the bill establishes a troubling precedent that tries to mandate that the Department of Medical Assistance cover a specific category of service under Medicaid. Current Georgia law provides for the Department of Medical Assistance as the state Medicaid agency, and authorizes the Board of Medical Assistance to determine appropriate coverage and changes to the state plan for medical assistance. The department, with the approval of the board, already is authorized to modify the state plan or apply for waivers to extend eligibility or expand services. For the above reasons, I hereby veto House Bill 465. VETO NUMBER 11 House Bill 914 provides for a full scholarship program for any student who has completed the two-year military scholarship program at Georgia Military College in Milledgeville to attend any Board of Regents institution that offers a Reserve Officers' Training Corps (ROTC) program. While the state currently funds four year military scholarships at North Georgia College, those recipients are required to attend the military college for four years to retain eligibility for the scholarship. Lottery funds currently are used to support a full military scholarship for selected students attending Georgia Military College, which is a private institution. These funds support 66 scholarships per year. If all Georgia Military College military scholarship recipients attend a Regents institution in their junior and senior years, House Bill 914 could cost between $405,000 and $611,000. None of these estimated costs were included in House Bill 204, the Fiscal Year 1998 budget act. Instead of requiring the state to assume an obligation to provide full military scholarships for students to continue their education at a non-military school, students who complete the program at Georgia Military College with a B average currently are eligible for the HOPE scholarship at any public or private college in Georgia. In addition, any of these students who go on to North Georgia Military College to complete their education and participate in ROTC will be eligible for a $1,500 annual tuition grant. Due to negative budget implications, the availability of the HOPE scholarship and tuition grants, and the need to continue the policy of providing military scholarships only for those recipients attending military college, I hereby veto House Bill 914. VETO NUMBER 12 Senate Bill 349 originally was introduced on behalf of the Department of Audits, so that this agency can meet new national accounting requirements related to nonprofit organizations and facilitate an earlier compilation of statewide financial statements. However, the bill became flawed when an

Page CCCXXXVI

amendment was added late in the session concerning the manner in which the state seal is affixed to state-owned vehicles. Current law requires the state seal to be placed on the trunk or other conspicuous spot on all state-owned vehicles except law enforcement vehicles used for investigative purposes. Senate Bill 349 would require a decal or seal containing the name of the agency which owns or leases the vehicle to be placed on the front door on each side of any non-investigative state vehicle, and makes any person driving a vehicle not complying with this edict guilty of a misdemeanor. This provision has three problems. First, it will require an expenditure of funds to place these additional markings on every eligible state vehicle, and no such funds were appropriated in House Bill 204, the Fiscal Year 1998 budget act. Second, there is little basis for concluding that the current requirement that the state seal be placed on the trunk of state vehicles does not sufficiently identify those vehicles. The Office of Planning and Budget, the Department of Audits, and the Department of Administrative Services have issued a joint policy memorandum on state-owned motor vehicles that can be modified to address the issue of vehicle markings in event the current law needs further amplification. Finally, the provisions which subject the driver of the vehicle to up to a $1,000 fine and 12 months in jail appear to be overly punitive. With respect to the new procedures needed by the Department of Audits, I will include such requirements in a forthcoming Executive Order to enable that agency to meet federal guidelines. The department can then pursue any additional corrective legislation next session. Based on the reasons stated above, I hereby veto Senate Bill 349. VETO NUMBER 13 House Bill 433 prohibits the filing of a civil action to recover damages against land surveyors for any error, defect, omission, or miscalculation in a survey or plat more than six years from the date of the survey or plat. This bill started out as an effort to limit the responsibility of land surveyors only to those persons in privity of contract with the land surveyor. However, the broad language in the final version of the bill is both anti-consumer and unduly protective of those individuals who may willfully execute an erroneous survey or plat to the detriment of the landowner. Under the provisions of House Bill 433, no person could bring an action for damages against a land surveyor for an error or omission in a survey or plat more than six years from the date of the survey or plat even if the error or omission was intentional or grossly negligent. Moreover, it is entirely possible that such a grievous error would not be discovered by an

Page CCCXXXVII

unsuspecting owner until the property in question is sold much later in time. It is unfair and inequitable to bar every person from bringing an action under such circumstances. Based on these reasons, I hereby veto House Bill 433. VETO NUMBER 14 House bill 419 provides that heavy-duty equipment motor vehicles when owned by a dealer engaged in the business of selling such vehicles will not be subject to ad valorem tax normally assessed against tangible property. Currently, heavy-duty equipment vehicles are subject to the same ad valorem tax rules as any other motor vehicle. Article VII, Section II, Paragraph II of the Georgia Constitution provides that no property shall be exempted from ad valorem taxation unless such exemption is approved in a referendum. Since the enactment of House Bill 419 is not dependent upon any such referendum, the bill may be constitutionally flawed. In addition, the Attorney General's office currently is defending the state in a lawsuit which challenges another ad valorem tax exemption which was not approved by the voters. Unitl that lawsuit is resolved, it would be inappropriate to create another questionable ad valorem tax exemption which could subject the state to another round of litigation. Based upon these factors, I hereby veto House Bill 419. VETO NUMBER 15 House Bill 838 provides a homestead exemption for residents 70 years of age or older from certain ad valorem taxes levied on behalf of the Chattooga County School District. After passage, a defect in the bill was discovered causing its author to request a veto. This homestead exemption was perfected in House Bill 1009, which I have signed. Therefore, at the request of the author, I hereby veto House Bill 838 on technical grounds.
