(a) In that it has been previously declared by state law that the use of the capitol building and grounds shall be limited to departments of state government and to state and national political organizations and for no other purposes unless specifically authorized by law and in that the employees of the departments of state government, and of state agencies, authorities, commissions, boards, bureaus, and other state entities located in the capitol building and other state buildings are engaged in the business of the citizens of the state and should not be unreasonably interrupted in the performance of their public duties, it is, therefore, in the best interest of the state and its citizens that a public policy against such unreasonable disruptions of state employees in the performance of their official duties be declared, and it is in this Code section so declared.

(b) Without the express written consent of the director of the Georgia Building Authority, his designee, or his successor in office first having been received and except as otherwise provided by state law, it shall be illegal for any person, firm, group, organization, or other entity to beg, panhandle, solicit, or to sell goods, wares, or any other objects or services within any buildings or on the grounds, sidewalks, or other ways owned by or under the control of the state, its agencies, authorities, commissions, boards, bureaus, or other state entities.

(d) The authority or its legal successor shall establish the rules and regulations for and carry out the implementation of this Code section.

(e) Notwithstanding anything contained in this Code section or elsewhere, subsections (a) and (b) of this Code section shall be applicable only to the buildings, facilities, and improvements adjacent to the state capitol and shall not be applicable to persons, firms, organizations, corporations, or other entities doing business with the Department of Administrative Services or the activities in relation thereto; and this Code section shall be permissive in nature.

(f) The authority shall be authorized to employ security guards known as the Georgia Building Authority Police to keep watch over and protect the properties of the authority and such other properties as may be administered by, or as may be directed by, the authority. The Georgia Building Authority Police employed as provided by this Code section shall be employees of and compensated by the authority.
