SB 392 passed at 1433 EDT, 1333 CDT, 1233 MDT and 1133 PDT. Not sure about AZ as they don't move the clocks forward.

I have to admit, it was spellbinding watching the debate and vote live. I know a few folks had a lot riding on this bill passing into law, and I hope that the last hurdle will be a small one.

I do not know how the rest of you feel about this so I will type it just like I am thinking it like I normally do anyhow.

As this thread is dwindling down and only requires the posting of the Governor of Georgia signing the Bill SB 392 into Law I would personally like EVERYONE who had any participation by either calling - e mailing - donating (please do not enter $) but a FULL and COMPLETE record here for everyone to see in years ahead of ALL who helped make this happen from the background.

No need to enter what you did - just as long as you participated (and I do not mean just thinking about wanting to do something without an effort - you know what I mean).

Just click on reply and enter your name - not login name please. There are many silent in the background that should be recognized in this please.

I did not donate any money because I am broke.

I did call and email my State Senator, Frank Ginn and voice my support. He actually called me back after it had passed the Senate.

I emailed all of House Rules Committee members, other than the ones Swiss posted as supporters. This took about 4 hours one morning since I couldn't paste all their email addresses in at once-I had to individually copy and paste each and every address. I got back between 6-12 emails saying to use a different acct. because the "official" one wasn't the one they used, for a # of reasons.

I called and emailed my House Representative as well and voiced my support for the bill.

Read many pages of documents that Zout sent me
Watched/listened to many hours of the GA Senate and House, waiting for the vote to come up. I sit a desk most of the the day and have access to the web.
I didn't call or email as I am not part of the "official" GA Mafia

Sent money, emailed senators, emailed rule committees, email Ga House members in the local area(even though I live in SC, I felt like I had a vested interest in this process as those of us in SC can point at Ga if we ever have a problem with DMV in SC).

Glad it worked out well, and we beat the odd makers. Maybe we should have gone to Vegas, and placed a bet or two.

And Warthog, maybe we can vote at Zout's picnic, and make you the horse wangler for the GA Mafia............

George reached out to help and then after getting the assignment, really went out of his way to look up all the GA members from the SS map and then send out PM's. Here we thought everyone was reading this thread but George's actions showed that we were wrong to assume!

Thanks George! Big Salute

Started this morning by sending Swiss a saved e mail of many of when this all began just to bring him back to the beginning.

I still need to work off part of my donated money on another of Swiss's projects so its not over for me yet
Warthog can tell just how many files I read and saved and probably just as many not saved for documentation to back what I believed was wrong - did not know what was wrong to be denied in the beginning to not get a Title an Registration but I soon found out and had no clue how to approach it except taking no for an answer and not fixing this legally was not an option.

SO - up stood SWISS. From there all I did was try to stay out of the way and in the background - sometimes more than not I kind of got on his nerve - I just have a full attack balls to the wall approach when I know something is wrong and what I think should be an easy answer to fix it - thank him for his patience having to deal with me - he gets the first hug from my sister at the cookout.

Made all calls of the entire lists - backed those up with e mails and more calls.
Just did what I was asked to do from that point on and watched just like the rest of you outstanding members and friends did.

You folks deserve all the credit for this not me - Swiss is ##1 and you folks fall right in line.
I am gald its almost over and now we will be able to LEGALLY Title - Register - Drive our trucks along with the proper insurance for what they are and not having to deal with anything morally and legally wrong.

I did e mail Senator Gooch also today and thanked him for his support and hard work as well.

DO NOT be surprised if there is a container at my cookout to help pay off what is owed for folks support and work.

SALUTE SWISS - awesome hard work. Salute Members.
