Rep. Victor Anderson
District 10

This legislation would require municipalities to submit digital shapefiles of any annexations to the Legislative and Congressional Reapportionment Office of the General Assembly not more than 30 days following the last day of the quarter in which the annexation becomes effective. Current law only requires municipalities to submit descriptions of annexations to the Georgia Department of Community Affairs. 

The bill would also require regional commissions to assist municipalities in preparing digital shapefiles of annexations if a municipality cannot produce one using its own geographic information system software.
