A bill is going to be introduced in the Georgia House or Representative to rescind Georgia HB-87 – Georgia’s Anti-immigrant legislation. The "Rural Recovery Act of 2012" is designed to help Georgia's agricultural businesses to recover losses due to HB87.
State Representative Lynmore James, Democrat from Montezuma, said: "I am a Georgia farmer" and "I know that our families cannot afford to have politicians playing with their food. If we want good jobs and a stronger economy, the first step is repealing HB 87."
The other co-sponsor of this legislation, Rep. Pedro "Pete" Marin, Democrat from Duluth, announced a hearing and press conference unveiling the bill to be held on Thursday, January 26, at 2:30 PM in Room 216 of the Capitol. James and Marin will be joined by other members of the House Democratic Caucus for the occasion, and all will be available to answer questions.
People who can support this legislation to rescind HB87 should join the hearing to show their support for this important legislation. HB87 should be repealed.
