Retailers in Georgia will no longer be required to inform their customers that it’s a crime to steal their shopping carts.
Civilization has advanced enough that a proper understanding of the rules of shopping cart ownership can now be assumed to be part of everyone’s moral education, Gov. Nathan Deal decided with his pen today.
HB 1093, sponsored by Paulette Braddock, R-Powder Springs, adjusted a current law that declares “it shall be unlawful for any person to abandon a shopping cart upon any public street, sidewalk, way, or parking lot other than a parking lot on the premises of the owner.”
Braddock’s bill erases the requirement that a retailer “post in at least three prominent places in his store and at each exit therefrom a printed copy” of the above news. In 12-point type or larger.
We can’t confirm reports that another portion of the bill frees Georgia banks from their obligation to inform customers – in type large enough to be seen through ski masks – that “it shall be unlawful for any person to remove large sums of money from the premises through the use of overly impressive firearms.”
