Michael Caldwell's thoughts

This was a single vote that encompassed four local bills. 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 574 - Johns Creek, City of; Fulton County; provide for vacancies on the governing authority
HB 575 - Brookhaven, City of; levy an excise tax
HB 576 - Habersham County; reconstitute board of elections and registration; provisions
