Ethics laws set to take effect Jan. 1 in Georgia

Ethics laws set to take effect Jan. 1 in Georgia
ATLANTA (AP) - After dominating much of the legislative session, a set of major ethics reforms is scheduled to take effect Jan. 1. The laws are among a small number of major bills that become law with the new year. Others include rules requiring all new day care employees to undergo more exhaustive background checks, as well as a requirement that schools provide information about concussion risks to parents. While the ethics laws set the first state limits on how much a lobbyist can spend, there remain considerable loopholes and questions about how it will all be enforced. Under the new laws, lobbyists will not be able to spend more than $75 at a time. Previously, lobbyists could spend as much as they wanted as long as it was noted on disclosure reports filed with the state. (Copyright 2013 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.

New layoffs in Central Georgia were down in November by 36 percent.

Central Georgia's unemployment rate fell to 7.6 percent, down from October's 8.4 percent, according to a Department of Labor news release.

The rate fell when fewer people were laid off in manufacturing, health care, social assistance and administrative fields.

That is almost three points higher than Georgia's lowest unemployment rate in Athens.

Good grief! Just when we needed a bit of good news, instead we hear that the FAA is debating whether to let airline passengers use their cell phones during flights.

Hard to think of anyone who would volunteer to sit next to a guy with a loud voice yammering into his cell phone on a cross-country trip.
