Georgia General Assembly Passes Speaker Murphy's Bane

Tuesday afternoon, the Georgia House gave final passage to a bill that Speaker Tom Murphy killed throughout his tenure as leader of that chamber.

Senate Bill 458, which removes the exemption on seat belts being worn in pickup trucks, passed the House yesterday on a vote of 132-29.

The bill now heads to Gov. Perdue's desk for his signature. And Speaker Murphy is rolling over in his grave.
