A bill requiring stricter background checks for Georgia child care workers is now law, after Gov. Nathan Deal signed the legislation Wednesday afternoon in Macon.

Kids from St. Andrews Montessori were very excited to see the Governor’s helicopter land in the front lawn of their school. Standing on playground mulch, Deal explained why he was signing the bill drafted by Macon state Rep. Allen Peake.

“We know that while sometimes criminals may apply for jobs in these types of setting, we want to know who is being hired on our childcare facilities,” Deal said.
