GPA PAC Update
GPA is partnering with ACCG and GMA to advocate for Affordable Housing. GPA is part of the dialogue and we’re helping to identify a counter proposal to preempting home rule. APA is helping us identify best practices from across the country. We know that there is a proposal coming from Representative Washburn. And we’re grateful to be at the table.
Please make sure that YOUR local officials are talking to your state Representatives and Senators about the potential impacts of preemption on effective housing solutions.
Additionally, the Board just voted to formally support HB 71 the Okefenokee Protection Act that would help in efforts to restrict mining near the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge.
