The Act provides for a limited abrogation of state sovereign immunity in Georgia. It applies to acts committed by officers and employees of the state and state agencies, but excludes officers and agents of counties, municipalities, hospital authorities, and school boards. It requires a notice of claim to be made to the government, provides for a liability limit for the state, and allows those injured between January 1, 1991 and the effective date of the Act to file suit under the Act.
