No more free football tickets for lawmakers?

ATLANTA (CBS ATLANTA/AP) -

Free football tickets could soon disappear for Georgia's state lawmakers.

Georgia's General Assembly will vote on a proposed ethics reform measure during the upcoming session. It includes a lobbyist gift ban that could axe football tickets.

According to The Atlanta Journal-Constutution, some state schools use the games as a lobbying tool to get lawmakers on-campus to show them what the schools are doing. Schools rely on funding from the state budget.
