“ILR congratulates the Georgia legislature and Governor Perdue for leading the nation with this first-of-its-kind transparency bill and encourages other states to follow suit. We are particularly grateful for the leadership of Senator John Wiles, who sponsored the bill in the Senate, as well as House sponsor Representative Earl Ehrhart for getting this bill over the finish line. . .
