Georgia Legislature Adjourns Sine Die
The Georgia General Assembly adjourned sine die on April 2. Lawmakers passed Senate Bill 213, relating to campaign contributions and disclosure reports.
The bill amended reporting dates for a nonelection year to June 30 and December 31 for elected state officials, county officials, members of a local board of education, and elected municipal officers.
Senate Bill 213 also moved the March election year report to April 30.
Under the bill, any person required to register and report campaign contributions must file a December 31 campaign contribution disclosure report regardless of whether the candidate they are supporting has a report due.
If signed by the governor, the bill becomes effective July 1.
The statutory requirement to file semimonthly reports when the Legislature is in session will end with the report due April 15.
Monthly activity reporting for state level lobbyists will resume on May 5.
