Things are moving quickly at the Capitol and can change at a moment’s notice.
It appears that the Lakeside Bill will have a hearing in the State and Local Governmental Operations (SLOGO) Senate Committee TODAY, February 5th, 2014. The committee will meet at 1:00 PM in Room 310 of the Coverdell Legislative Office Building across from the Capitol.
The Bill is not currently on the committee’s agenda, but there has been a request by Sen. Fran Millar to add it, and his request probably will be granted.
This committee decides if and how the Lakeside Bill moves forward.
Please join us TODAY Wednesday, February 5th, 1:00pm at the SLOGO Committee meeting and show your support for Tucker and the Lakeside Bill.
Take MARTA to the hearing. The Georgia State University station on the east/west line is a short walk to the Capitol; the Coverdell Building is just south of the Capitol. Parking is limited during the legislative session; if you must drive, please carpool. Some parking lot options: Number 1 Capitol Lot at the corner of Capitol Avenue and Memorial Drive; Pete Hackney Parking Deck (162 Jesse Hill Jr. Drive); Steve Polk Parking Plaza (65 Martin Luther King Jr. Drive); and 90 Central Parking Lot (accessible from Central Avenue and Courtland Street).
Join your friends and neighbors to send a strong message to the Georgia General Assembly. Meet for an early lunch at the Coverdell Cafe, 6th Floor of the Coverdell Building, reasonably priced, and open to the public. Following lunch, head for the hearing in Room 310, Coverdell Building.
