GEORGIA - A Georgia lawmaker has drafted a bill that would restrict police from stopping any truck hauling live poultry on a hot day. It would bar police from stopping trucks carrying chickens when the temperature is above 85 degrees, unless the officer suspects illegal activity. Even then, it limits the stops to 10 minutes unless an arrest is made. The proposal is being dubbed the "hot chicken protection bill." It was drafted by State Rep. Carl Rogers, a Republican from Gainesville. <i>Source: KTVU</i>
