Staff Analysis of the Legislation

This legislation (mirroring SB 302) authorizes city and county governments, via the adoption of a resolution, to remove or relocate any plaque, marker or memorial which honors the military service of the Confederate States of America that is located on public property or is publicly-owned.  If a privately-owned monument is on public property, a county may, by resolution, return the monument to the private owner.  ACCG supports home rule as one of its guiding principles.
