Dear friends of the Dustin Inman Society:
THANK YOU FOR YOUR PHONE CALLS AND E-MAILS TO GEORGIA LEGISLATORS!
OUR HARD WORK HAS PAID OFF AGAIN.
While we still have several other very important bills that are not yet ready for the Governor’s signature, I wanted to let you know that Senator John Wiles’ bill – SB 350 – aimed at drivers who have never obtained a Georgia driver’s license has passed the Senate (in February), the House last week and survived a reconsideration vote in the House yesterday.
The bill will now go to be signed by Governor Perdue and become law …if he signs it.
Please know that this is a very important victory for the majority of Americans in Georgia who support the equal application of American law – even for illegal aliens who have been driving Georgia roads with little fear of any serious punishment – and also for improved public safety.With the governor’s signature, this bill will save lives and cause even more illegal aliens to move out of Georgia.
SB 350 would require a minimum of two days in jail for the first offense of driving in Georgia but failing to have obtained a driver’s license and would create a felony for a fourth conviction within five years.
Governor Perdue vetoed a nearly identical bill last year. There will be a great deal of pressure from the open borders lobby to convince the governor to veto SB 350 again. You can click here and here to see that the opposition to this bill was very well-funded and organized.
To let the governor know that most Georgians support punishment for the crime of driving illegally please help me with a call to the governor’s office. Please call Governor Perdue at 404 656 1776 to leave short, respectful message for him saying that you worked hard to help get SB 350 passed and you trust he will sign the legislation into law. As always, use your cell phone if it a long distance call. You can e-mail the governor’s office HERE. BE advised…the illegal alien lobby will create a lot of calls to the governor asking him to veto this bill again.
Also please call Senator John Wiles office to leave a message of thanks and support. Senator Wiles phone number 404 657 0406 THIS IS AS IMPORTANT AS CALLING THE GOVERNOR!
Co-sponsors of SB 350:
(1) Wiles,John 37th (sponsor)
(2) Rogers,Chip 21st
(3) Seabaugh,Mitch 28th
(4) Murphy,Jack 27th

I will let you know the outcome of the other bills we have worked on next week, but I can tell you that all of them – INCLUDING HB 978 – look good for final passage and that there will be big news coming out the Capitol when the session is complete – which is scheduled for next Friday, April 4.
AGAIN: THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR KIND WORDS OF SUPPORT, YOUR CALLS AND E-MAILS TO LAWMAKERS AND SPECIAL THANKS TO THOSE WHO HAVE DONATED TO THE DUSTIN INMAN SOCIETY. WE ARE MAKING A DIFFERENCE ! PAT YOURSELF ON THE BACK!
