'''May 7, 2008''': The Georgia Association of Convenience Stores is lobbying the state legislature to place a measure on the November statewide ballot that would allow communities to decide, by local option, whether they would allow Sunday package alcohol sales.
  
Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle was thought to oppose the ballot measure, thus slowing its progress through the state senate after its early momentum in the Georgia House. However, Cagle has now noted, "While I would vote against such a change at the ballot box, I do not believe the legislature should deny voters a chance to make this choice for themselves and their community." Georgia is one of three states that do not allow package sales on Sunday.<ref>[http://www.gainesvilletimes.com/news/article/5522/ ''Cagle won’t stand in way of statewide vote on Sunday alcohol sales''], May 7, 2008</ref>

Despite hard lobbying from the "Get Georgia Moving" coalition, a November ballot measure to approve a constitutional amendment to allow communities to raise their [[sales tax]]es for transportation purposes by "local option" was shot down by the Georgia senate.  To refer a measure to the statewide ballot, 2/3 of each house must approve the idea.

Georgia enjoys just two of the [[forms of direct democracy in the American states|available seven]] forms of direct democracy.  If the [[Georgia State Legislature|General Assembly]] places a [[constitutional amendment]] on the statewide ballot, voters can ratify or reject it.  Secondly, Georgia is one of just 18 states nationally with the right of statewide recall.
+
  
Executive authority in the state rests with the governor, currently [[Sonny Perdue]]. Perdue is the first [[Republican Party|Republican]] governor since Reconstruction. Both the governor and lieutenant governor are elected on separate ballots to four-year terms of office.
+
{|
 +
|- valign="top"
  
Legislative authority resides in the [[Georgia State Legislature|General Assembly]], composed of the Senate and House of Representatives. The Lieutenant Governor presides over the Senate, while the House of Representatives selects their own Speaker. The [[Georgia Constitution]] mandates a maximum of 56 senators, elected from single-member districts, and a minimum of 180 representatives, apportioned among representative districts (which sometimes results in more than one representative per district); there are currently 56 senators and 180 representatives. The term of office for senators and representatives is two years.

State senate may put Sunday alcohol sale on ballot

May 7, 2008: The Georgia Association of Convenience Stores is lobbying the state legislature to place a measure on the November statewide ballot that would allow communities to decide, by local option, whether they would allow Sunday package alcohol sales.

Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle was thought to oppose the ballot measure, thus slowing its progress through the state senate after its early momentum in the Georgia House. However, Cagle has now noted, "While I would vote against such a change at the ballot box, I do not believe the legislature should deny voters a chance to make this choice for themselves and their community." Georgia is one of three states that do not allow package sales on Sunday. [1]
