Leaders of the Georgia Senate and House of Representatives last week named Paulding state legislators to study committees approved in this year’s session of the Georgia General Assembly.

District 17 State Rep. Howard Maxwell, R-Dallas, will serve as chairman of the House study committee on the Georgia alcoholic beverage code, announced House Speaker David Ralston, R-Blue Ridge. The committee was created by House Resolution 1599.

“Currently, there are undefined terms, outdated terminology, obsolete provisions and inconsistent references in the Georgia alcoholic beverage code,” according to the legislative web site. “The committee will study and review the conditions, needs, issues, and problems related to the Georgia Alcoholic Beverage Code.”

District 67 State Rep. Micah Gravley, R-Douglasville, will be one of four House members of the joint Senate-House. The committee was set up by Senate Resolution 981.

The committee will study “the effects of the extracts and compounds of cannabis as a medical treatment to determine if it is appropriate to enact legislation that will allow for the prescription of medical cannabis,” the legislative web site states.

District 19 State Rep. Paulette Braddock, R-Powder Springs, was appointed to the House Study Committee on Georgia-Based Film and Post-Production.

The committee was created by House Resolution 1601. It will “assess the impact of film and post production industries and their significant contributions to the economy and welfare of Georgia,” the web site states.
