ATLANTA – State House Representative Scott Holcomb (D-81) is introducing two bills during the current legislative session.

The bills are designed to legislatively validate the successful Chamblee referendum vote that was taken in November which included the Century Center property within the City of Chamblee borders.

If the bills successfully navigate the legislature, they will also put to rest any litigation that is pending by fixing the borders of Chamblee and Brookhaven as they were drawn and approved by voters.

This legislation is being handled under the local legislation rules and have been “first read” in the DeKalb Delegation. The “second reading” in the DeKalb Delegation will take place in the early part of next week.

More on these bills as they continue to move through the legislative process.
