The Republican Party in the House of Representatives insists on more representation of Democrats

Senator John F. Kennedy (R-18, Macon) presents SB 1 EX to the Senate Chamber during a special session at the Georgia State Capitol in Atlanta on Tuesday, November 9, 2021. The hearings were a step towards voting on new political maps for the State House, the State Senate and Congress during the decade-long General Assembly session.

ATLANA (AP) – Republicans of Georgia are making additional changes in local government due to the objections of Democrats in these areas.

On Thursday, the House of Representatives voted to create new maps of district commissions and school councils in Augusta-Richmond County and to ensure that school council elections are non-partisan in Gwyneth County.

These three measures and the bill on the reorganization of county commissions in Fulton County are sent to Governor Brian Kemp for his signature or veto.

Lawmakers have already advanced a map that redraws the Gwyneth County Commission to provide a county that leans toward Republicans.

Maps of the Cobb County Commission and School Board redrawing are under consideration in the State Senate.
