Morning Round-up: Bradley Co. Sheriff Press Conference and Georgia Governor Handguns on College Campuses
Bradley County Sheriff Eric Watson will meet today with General Steve Crump from the 10th Judicial District Attorney’s Office to discuss last week’s assault on the Sheriff.
Last Thursday, Sheriff Watson was injured while trying to break up a fight involving Gregory Mathis.
The press conference starts at 2:00 p.m. today.
Today marks the deadline for Georgia Governor Nathan Deal to either sign or veto legislation allowing concealed handguns on college campuses in the state.
Deal, a Republican in his final term, wanted lawmakers to pass follow-up legislation limiting access to on-campus day care centers and other spaces.
He also is expected to act on other closely watched bills today, including a state Supreme Court expansion and standardized testing limits.
Alabama State Auditor Jim Zeigler says he will request a court order to compel Gov. Robert Bentley’s testimony on his relationship with a former political aide.
Bentley on Monday was a no-show at Zeigler’s office.
Citing an obscure piece of state code, Zeigler last month said he has the power to compel testimony under oath.
Zeigler asked that Bentley bring documents related to state cellphone use and travel records.
