New Georgia Sunshine Laws
GPA General Counsel David Hudson has complied a handbook of the new Georgia Sunshine Laws. After more than a year of work spanning two legislative sessions, an overhaul of Georgia's open government laws was passed by the General Assembly and signed by the Governor on April 17. The changes in the law are currently in effect. Please download this handbook for a detailed summary of the current Sunshine Laws.

Ga Open Records/Meeting Laws
This guide was prepared by Valdosta State University

intended to give GCPA members a quick guide to Georgia open
records/meeting law that can be customized for individual colleges and universities. It is not a substitute for legal advice or the Ga Law for Journalist, however.
