Functions of the Georgia Crime Information Center Council include functions which are clearly executive functions within the meaning of the Constitution. 1975 Op. Att'y Gen. No. 75-142.Former provision including judges as council members void.
- Former statutory mandate that the council include a member of the Georgia Council of Superior Court Judges and a member of the Georgia Association of Municipal Judges is in conflict with the Constitution and is therefore void. 1975 Op. Att'y Gen. No. 75-142.
