Legislative Update
• HB276 – Reauthorized SW/HW Fees
(Signing statement paraphrased – the Constitution
of Georgia specifically limits any attempt to
dedicate revenues in a general bill unless
specifically permitted by the Constitution of Georgia,
I would deem this language in the House Bill 276 as
being nonbinding)
