Atlanta Falcons' Arthur Blank critical of Georgia election law, will help 'make voting easier'

Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank was critical of a new law that imposes restrictions on voting in Georgia, saying Tuesday that the state should "make voting easier, not harder for every eligible citizen."

The law -- S.B. 202 -- will shorten periods to request absentee ballots, make it a crime to give food and water to people in line to vote and shorten the time between general and run-off elections to 28 days, among other restrictions.

Blank pledged that his group, Arthur M. Blank Sports and Entertainment (AMBSE), will continue supporting efforts to improve voter access in the state.
