Kemp: Anti-crime bills will be part of fall special session

ATLANTA (AP) — Georgia's governor says he will ask lawmakers to consider proposals to fight crime in Atlanta in a fall special legislative session. Gov. Brian Kemp told the House Public Safety and Homeland Security Committee on Monday that he wants measures to be considered in a session already planned to redraw electoral districts. House Speaker David Ralston says House leaders will propose $3 million to hire 20 new state troopers to focus on some issues in metro Atlanta, and beef up anti-gang and anti-human trafficking enforcement. The hearing comes days after Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms proposed a $70 million crime-fighting plan that includes 250 more police officers
