Amendment 1 not personal, spouses say

Amendment 1 not personal, spouses say
October 25, 2010 --

Claudia Levitas serves as an officer of a business group pushing to enforce non-compete clauses in Georgia law. Her husband, state Rep. Kevin Levitas, has been pushing a constitutional amendment for years to do just that. Their relationship has bubbled up into the debate over Amendment 1, which Georgia voters will be asked to ratify next week at the polls. Critics suggest Levitas (D-Tucker) had a personal motive for proposing the amendment and a companion bill, a notion that he dismisses as “unfounded and ridiculous.”
