Rep. Kevin Tanner, R-Dawsonville, introduced a bill last week that is his answer to last session's failed Amendment One, also known as the Opportunity School District amendment. Tanner spoke about the new bill at his breakfast on Feb. 11 at the Georgia Racing Hall of Fame, a meeting he holds every other Saturday throughout the session. He wanted to make one thing clear from the start: this bill is not the Opportunity School District, plan B. "It's not OSD, it has nothing to do with OSD," Tanner said.
