With all of the focus on the state of Georgia’s open carry laws that took effect on July 1, 2014, other notable laws that went into effect on that day went under the radar.

Therefore, here is a list taken from Georgia governor’s blog of some of the state’s new laws.

 • The Fair Business Practices Act has a program that helps individuals who’ve been in prison to transition back into society by providing them information on jobs and education.

• The Zell Miller Grant, named after the state’s former Democratic Gov. Zell Miller, pays the entire tuition of a student attending technical college and who maintains a 3.5 GPA.

 • A statue of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., will be placed on the state capitol’s ground.
