State lawmakers passed a bill Tuesday that would strip state funding from private colleges in Georgia that adopt "sanctuary policies," meaning the schools limit cooperation with immigration officials. 

So far, no colleges have said they won't cooperate. 

At Emory, students have protested, trying to get the university to declare itself a sanctuary campus.

At the very end of the ballot, Georgia voters are facing a question about how to address what some believe is a serious and growing problem in the state and beyond: child sex trafficking. If approved, Georgia will establish a permanent fund to serve this select group, based on research and statistics some worry can be distorted by extreme emotions this issue raises for many people.

If it’s adopted, the referendum will be the cherry on a legislative sundae that anti-trafficking advocates and lawmakers have been constructing since 2009.
