Michael Caldwell's thoughts

This was a single vote that encompassed one local bill. Local bills are bills sponsored by a county delegation, typically on behalf of local government, and are rarely opposed as long as the delegation presenting is in agreement.

This calendar included:
HB 130 - Emanuel County Development Authority; members; change
HB 131 - South Fulton, City of; change corporate boundaries
HB 132 - Fulton County Industrial District; repeal amendment
HB 171 - Meriwether County Water and Sewerage Authority; members and chairperson; change designation
