On the committee, state Rep. Matt Ramsey, R-Peachtree City, took issue with prosecutors’ warnings that the state was headed down a slippery slope, as did Micah Gravley, R-Douglasville, and B.J. Pak, R-Lilburn. Pak had this exchange with Terry Norris, executive director of the Georgia Sheriffs Association – which approved last year’s bill:
Norris: But you had one disorder. Seizure disorder.
Pak: We'll stick with one disorder, then. Adult seizures. What number are you comfortable with, and what number are you not comfortable with – that the sheriff's association would be willing to accept? Less than a thousand or 10,000? I'm talking about people suffering from seizures only. I'm trying to understand where the line is.
Norris: What I'm trying to say is, when you limit it to children with seizure disorders, there was a finite number of people….If there were problems, we would be able to see through these few people.
No vote was taken on the bill.
