Georgia House approves oversight committee for district attorneys

Georgia legislatureThe Georgia House of Representatives approved a bill Monday that creates a new state board that would oversee locally elected district attorneys.

SB 92, which can be read here, creates an eight-member Prosecuting Attorneys Qualifications Commission.

The bill comes in the wake of Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis’ ongoing investigation into alleged election interference from former president Donald Trump into the outcome of Georgia’s 2020 presidential election.

The Georgia Senate passed a bill that would create a commission with power to remove district attorneys on Day 27.

Senate Bill 92, sponsored by Senator Randy Robertson (R – Catuala), would create an oversight commission for Georgia's district attorneys. The eight member panel could remove district attorneys and solicitor generals for a variety of issues, including refusal to prosecute certain crimes or physical or mental incapacity.

Robertson, a former law enforcement officer, said that the bill extends oversight that law enforcement already has to district attorneys and the solicitor general. He believes the bill is key for criminal justice system oversight.
