'''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>

Georgia ballot access lawsuit continues in 11th Circuit Court

Atlanta, Georgia: Coffield v Handel, a ballot access lawsuit, was debated in the 11th Circuit Court. The case challenged the petition requirement for independent and minor party candidates for the U.S. House in Georgia. Faye Coffield filed her rebuttal brief on November 19. The law stipulated that 5% of the number of registered voters is required for petitions of independent party and minor party candidates to be placed on the ballot. The state argues that the 5% petition requirement has been upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court in 1971.[1]
