The Act amends O.C.G.A. 15-6-17 by allowing a county in which a correctional institution or jail is located to conduct habeas corpus and nonjury proceedings by using one or more superior court judges and conducting the hearings in a suitable room at the county facility. Prior law allowed such proceedings at state correctional institutions only.
