Staff Analysis of the Legislation

This bill, an ACCG agenda item for the 2020 legislative session, authorizes counties to post legal advertisements on their county website, the legal organ’s website, or a common statewide website in addition to the required paid posting in the county’s legal organ.  The legal organ would still get paid to run the advertisement and all other current conditions in law would apply; however, should the legal organ delay or fail to post the notice in print, the publication on the county website, legal organ’s website or common statewide website would serve as adequate notice to the public.  The county’s business could continue even though, through no fault of its own, the legal organ delays or fails to run the advertisement as planned.  Current state law allows for no other recourse if a legal organ fails to run a legal advertisement.
