Legislative Update

ACCG produces weekly legislative updates while the General Assembly is in session to highlight legislation the association is monitoring on behalf of county governments throughout Georgia. The Legislative Update provides a brief analysis of the bill, underscoring its significance to counties and ACCG’s position. This publication is only sent out by email as that is the timeliest way to disseminate the information to the association membership considering how frequently and rapidly legislation changes.
