The Henry County Board of Commissioners voted at its March 7 regular meeting to approve three separate resolutions in opposition to three bills currently being considered by the Georgia General Assembly.
County officials said that all three bills – Senate Bill 188, House Bill 514, and House Bill 517 – pertain to reducing county authority over key development and planning decisions, such as how many rentals are allowed within a particular development, a 180-day limit on development moratoriums, and other challenges to home rule authority. County staff was instructed to submit the approved resolutions to the appropriate state officials as soon as possible.
