ATLANTA, Ga. (AP) – The Latest on the final day of the Georgia legislative session (all times local):
Pending the governor’s signature, Georgia will soon become the 16th state in the U.S. to enact a hands-free driving law.
The House gave final passage Thursday night to a proposal that would prevent drivers from holding their cellphones while behind the wheel.
Proponents say drivers who look at their phones are largely responsible for a recent spike in fatal crashes in Georgia – and the resulting rise in auto insurance premiums.
Under the bill, first-time offenders would be fined $50, with the fees increasing for repeat offenders.
First-time offenders could avoid the fine by appearing in court with proof that they have purchased a hands-free device.

THE VICE PRESIDENT: Well, hello, Georgia! (Applause.) Thank you, Governor. Thank you for those great words. Thank you for your great leadership here in Georgia. It is great to be back in the Peach State. (Applause.)
In fact, last Saturday, my family and I actually celebrated St. Paddy’s Day in the great city of Savannah, Georgia. (Applause.) And today, I’m honored to be here in Atlanta, with the men and women who helped elect a President and leaders in Congress who, just three months ago yesterday, enacted historic tax cuts to put America first. You did it, Georgia. (Applause.)
And, in fact, let me begin today by bringing greetings from a friend of mine...Read More

Metro Atlanta — a top five data center market — is also said to be on the radar of other West Coast Internet behemoths. Amazon and Microsoft are eying metro Atlanta for standalone data centers.

After a crash-filled Daytona 500, NASCAR moves to Atlanta’s weathered 1.54-mile asphalt track.
The track is favored by many NASCAR drivers as the surface allows for side-by-side racing in multiple grooves. Tires wear out very quickly on the oval, putting a higher importance on long-run speed.
Last year, Kevin Harvick won the first two stages at Atlanta, but a penalty allowed Brad Keselowski to swoop in for the checkered flag. Keselowski passed Kyle Larson for the lead with six laps to go for his first win of 2017.
All eyes will be on Georgia native Chase Elliott this weekend has he looks to capture his first Cup Series win at his hometown track. Back in the No. 9 car, a number made famous by his Hall of Fame father Bill, Chase does have a fair shot to win based on last season’s numbers.

Atlanta, GA (WJBF)—Happening now, a push in Georgia’s state capital to make it illegal for drivers to talk on their phone without a hands-free device. A Georgia lawmaker proposed a bill that would increase penalties for distracted driving.
On Thursday, NewsChannel 6’s Ashley Osborne sat down with Richard Baggett—a local father who has a personal connection to this legislation.
Baggett’s 21 year old daughter, Caitlyn, died in the I-16 wreck that killed five Georgia Southern University nursing students. A group of seven young women were headed from Statesboro to Savannah for their final clinical rotations. The truck driver who caused the accident is serving five years in prison...Read More

If you’re going to try to make money in the Atlanta GA real estate market, you have to know what you’re doing. That way, you don’t lose the money you put into it. Here are a few tips that can get you started.
You’re going to want to find a home that you can fix up and sell for a bit more than you paid for it. If your goal is to make money, you have to make sure that the cost of the renovations and the cost of the house combined still make it cheap enough for you to make money off of it when you sell it. If it’s going to net you barely any money to work with a fixer-upper home, then it’s not wise to invest in it unless you plan to wait for the market to change to where you can make more than you currently can.
