GA has had some serious issues that basically arise out of the Atlanta metro area. It is mostly a metro v everyone else regardless of classification.
I am not in favor of legislature trying to run high school athletics because it becomes a scenario of the politicians helping their area by getting "favors" from other politicians and areas that do not have a strong rep or one in the "in crowd" getting shafted.
The one time the NC legislature got involved they did not notify the NCHSAA and held a vote first thing in the morning on changing around conference alignments that had been created from a just concluded realignment. It helped out a few schools but really screwed some schools in the ripple effect as they were left out of a conference. Complete BS.
The other time recently it appeared as if they were getting involved was to allow home school athletes to compete at local schools. The NC legislature is "school choice" friendly so you can expect to see charters, magnets, and privates (especially Christian backed) get favorable treatment. The legislature being involved in NC may be a negative for 1A traditional schools but it may not. I would not want to take the gamble.
