Georgia State Senate President Pro Tempore Butch Miller released a statement on Major League Baseball’s decision to move the All-Star Game out of Georgia.
“I am disappointed to hear the news that MLB will not be holding its All Star Game here in Georgia, a decision which will only hurt Georgia workers, businesses and fans. Unfortunately, this decision was brought about by our very own U.S. Senators and the sitting President of the United States, who continue to repeat misinformation that even the liberal Washington Post recognized is false. The truth, however, is simple: Georgia offers far more opportunities to vote than most states in our country, including the President’s own home state, Delaware, and those opportunities were expanded by SB 202.”
