Staff Analysis of the Legislation

Following the failure of HB 302 (prohibit local government design standards) Rep. Vance Smith has introduced HR 591.  This resolution creates a House study committee (made up of five House members) on "workforce housing".  Noting that local design mandates infringe on private property rights, consumer choice of building products, increase costs, and prohibit thousands of Georgians from owning new homes, this study committee will make recommendations on legislation to curtail local design standards to be considered next legislative session.
