Georgia - - Has your state passed any recent criminal justice data legislation?

Georgia

Criminal history, court records, and corrections records are all public information in the state, but access is limited by lack of centralization of court records and rules that require criminal history information to be sourced from local agencies across the state rather than the central repository.
