Rep. Brad Raffensperger of the 50th, (Johns Creek)
Rep. Brad Raffensperger of the 50th, (Johns Creek) submitted a prefile bill in late December 2015 (designated HB 719) that would require certain residency requirements be met in order to hold elected office in Constitutionally-authorized offices in Georgia. Specifically, the bill amends Article 1, Chapter 2, Title 45 of the Official Code of Georgia Annotated (OCGA) to include the requirements:
“In addition to all other qualifications to serve on any municipal, county, or state commission, board, or authority, a person shall be a legal resident of this state and be registered to vote in this state in order to be eligible to serve on any municipal, county, or state commission, board, or authority in this state.”
