Staff Analysis of the Legislation

HB 90 amends Article 3 of Chapter 12 of Title 51 of the OCGA to specify the damages that individuals holding a security in land can seek when the land is converted without their consent. It creates uniformity with the Uniform Commercial Code by covering harvested timber as business personal property and specifying that a buyer in the ordinary course of business shall not have liability to such persons.
