This House Bill 781 was tabled on Tuesday which basically means that it has no chance. The Gwinnett Chamber however has put together a housing task force that meets today to directly address the foreclosure crisis in Gwinnett
State Rep. Dar'Shun Kendrick February 23, 2012 at 11:58 AM
I'm pleased that the Gwinnett Chamber is addressing this issue. However, this is a statewide issue that needs awareness and this rally and HB 781 is meant to address the STATE's problem with the issue of foreclosure. I look forward to working with the Chamber in the near future on issues such as these.
Glen Williams February 23, 2012 at 12:27 PM
I agree that it is a statewide issue but Gwinnett leaders are being proactive and have taken the initiative themselves to address their own crisis instead of waiting on legislation that may or may not pass. I would be more than happy to work with you as I am on the task force.
State Rep. Dar'Shun Kendrick February 23, 2012 at 12:35 PM
I applaud their proactiveness. It is a very complicated legislative process up here and sometimes things we want passed don't get passed for political reasons so I am happy they are not waiting. I am putting together several task forces (including education, housing, criminal justice, etc.) in the coming month or so and would invite you to participate in these discussions as well as the Chamber, whom we will be reaching out to.
