Among the many items on next month's ballot is a proposed constitutional amendment allowing multi-year leases for state agencies. The amendment would allow leases of up to twenty years subject to board approval. While supporters of the bill claimed the addition of multi-year leases would save money, opponents have expressed concern about locking into a multi-year lease as well as the longer leases not saving money.
The question as it appears on the ballot:
Shall the Constitution of Georgia be amended so as to provide for a reduction in the state's operating costs by allowing the General Assembly to authorize certain state agencies to enter into multi-year rental agreements?
Early voting began Monday. Election Day is November 6.
