In Jackson v. Raffensperger, 316 Ga. 383 (2023), the Supreme Court of Georgia struck down the state’s licensing law for lactation care providers. The law, which was the first of its kind in the nation, would have forced hundreds of women out of work. The Court held the law unconstitutional under the Georgia constitution’s due process clause. With this decision, Georgia joined other states such as Texas and Pennsylvania in recently distinguishing the state’s standard of review from the federal standard of review.

Renée Flaherty and Jaimie Cavanaugh, both attorneys with the Institute for Justice, join us to discuss the case.
