First Slice 2/28/13: Chickens reign supreme in Cobb

Posted By on Thu, Feb 28, 2013 at 8:23 AM

1. A divided Cobb County Commission struck down stricter laws around hiring illegal immigrants and said it was okay for folks to have chickens in their yard (which was really the hot button issue).

2. Former Washington lobbyist Jack Abramoff calls Georgia a "lobbyist Disneyland", citing a national reputation for loose regulation and ethics. He's all for the lobbyist gift reform bill currently meandering its way through the Gold Dome, but says it still has too many loopholes.

3. Border patrol agents have confiscated a marijuana cannon capable of firing 13-kilo packages of drugs over the border into California.
