This legislation authorizes cities and counties to decide for themselves whether to remove or conceal "publicly owned monuments, plaques, markers, or memorials which are dedicated to, honor or recount the military service of any past or present military personnel of this state... or Confederate States of America" on the local government's property.  The county or city must first adopt a resolution to do so.   Currently, local governments are prohibited from this.  ACCG has no position on said removal or concealment, but believes this decision is best left up to the local government - which this bill allows.
