One of these bills, HB 302, would restrict any county or municipality from setting or enforcing building codes beyond what is established at the state level.
This bill now has a companion bill, HB 937 and is proceeding through the committee process.
While State Senator Harrell and State Representative Wilensky promised to oppose this bill, it will move forward in the legislative process tomorrow (February 26) at 8 AM.
It is expected that it will proceed to the Rules Committee at 9 AM that same day.
Some local elected officials dismissed this bill, its potential impact, and the probability of it being passed; the bill still has momentum. This bill can severely restrict the abilities of Dunwoody and every other city to set its own building standards Dunwoody incorporated to set zoning and building codes to meet the unique changing needs of the city. All cities should have these rights preserved.
Show your opposition to HB 937 by calling or texting Senator Harrell and Representative Wilensky and encourage them to attend this committee meeting tomorrow and to speak against the bill in the legislature.
