Georgia governor vetoes 21 legislative proposals

By Associated Press

ATLANTA (AP) - Gov. Nathan Deal has vetoed 21 legislative proposals in what is likely his final set of vetoes as Georgia governor.

Among the bills vetoed were proposals to cap fees a homeowners' association could charge homeowners for information and that aimed to make contracts between local governments and private consultants more transparent.

Deal also vetoed a bill designed to give law enforcement the ability to prosecute hackers who probe computer systems for vulnerabilities but don't disrupt or steal data. The bill was criticized by the cybersecurity industry.

Deal signed into law a measure that would allow victims of domestic abuse who have received a court order to break a residential lease without penalty.

Deal on Monday signed into law a bill that allows lottery winners with prizes over $250,000 to remain anonymous upon request.
