Bill Highlight's: H.B. 891 and H.B. 899 Department of Banking’s Housekeeping Bill and LIBOR

Posted By: Lori Godfrey Advocacy Update,

Both H.B. 891 Department of Banking and Finance’s Housekeeping bill and H.B. 899 LIBOR were presented to the Banks & Banking Committee by Rep. Bruce Williamson (R), Monroe. The bills were both passed favorably by the committee. While previous House Banks & Banking Chairman Greg Morris insisted on having a least one hearing on the Department’s Housekeeping bill before allowing a vote, his successor Rep. Noel Williams, Jr. (R), Cordele, was content to let both measures advance after a single meeting.

The House Rules Committee placed both bills on the Rules Calendar for consideration by the full Chamber on Monday, February 7th.
