ATLANTA (AP) -- Gov. Nathan Deal is expected to sign legislation next week expanding gun rights in Georgia.

Spokesman Brian Robinson confirmed Friday a bill signing on House Bill 60 is planned Wednesday. Word of the event first came in an online posting by the gun rights group Georgia Carry.

The bill makes several changes to state law. It allows those with a license to carry to bring a gun into a bar without restriction and into some government buildings that don't have certain security measures. It also allows religious leaders to decide whether it's OK for a person with a carry license to bring a gun into their place of worship.

And school districts would now be able, if they wanted, to allow some employees to carry a firearm under certain conditions.
