Georgia State 2019-20 legislative session
HB 545 – Oppose
This bill seeks to undermine 40 years of Georgia’s current Right to Farm law and pave the way for industrial farming. We believe this bill hurts local, independent farms and poses a risk to clean water in the watershed.
SB 123, HB 93, SB 834 – Support
These bills all regulate the disposal of coal ash and seek to protect surrounding areas from coal ash pollution.
