HB 1173 would have amended Chapters 1, 5, and 10 of Title 42 of the Official Code of Georgia Annotated to allow inmates to volunteer for certain jobs in private industries. Additionally, it would have allowed the private sale of inmate-produced goods, directed the Georgia Department of Labor to ensure that inmates did not displace other and that officials only use inmate labor in areas where labor shortages existed, and allowed penal authorities to enter into service contracts with privately owned profit-making employers producing goods and services for sale to public and private purchasers.
