ABC News reports:
In a hearing late Thursday, legislators said their package of election law changes would drop some of the most controversial elements. State Rep. Barry Fleming (R), who heads the Special Committee on Election Integrity, said the new version of the bill would allow up to four weekend days of early voting, more than what is currently required.
Fleming and state Senate Majority Leader Mike Dugan (R) both said they do not expect the final bill will eliminate no-excuse absentee voting, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported. Coca-Cola and Home Depot publicly opposed the new restrictions proposed in the Republican-sponsored bills.
