Adopts 2019 Policy Agenda and Priorities
The ACCG membership approved the 2019 Policy Agenda and Legislative Priorities during this year’s Legislative Leadership Conference in Glynn County. There were two funding/appropriation priorities that included full state funding for new voting equipment that is expected to be deployed in 2020 and new funding for additional behavioral health crisis centers to help divert the mentally ill from county jails. In addition to the funding priorities, the membership approved three legislative priorities. The priority receiving the most votes was incentivizing broadband deployment in the rural areas of the state and to protect local control of county right-of-way during the deployment of 5G wireless equipment. The other two top legislative priorities were protecting local authority to place fees on the property tax bill and increasing the local tag and title fees to cover the cost incurred by the tax commissioner to process tags and titles for the state.

Time to Update your CLC Network
With the 2019 legislative session approaching, ACCG wants to update the list of county legislative coordinators (CLC). The CLC network is a communication tool that
helps county commissioners and county management stay updated on legislation of importance to counties and provides county-specific information to ACCG to help legislators assess the impact of proposed legislation.
Further details on the responsibilities of a CLC can be found
County chairmen are asked to officially designate the CLC by passing a
at a commission meeting.
