Dear fellow Georgia Recyclers,

I hope that you are doing well.

As you are aware, the Georgia General Assembly session will be here soon. You will begin receiving regular legislative reports from our GRA Lobbyist, Brian Hudson, with the Hudson Group.

We are expecting legislation this year on the subject of the purchase of regulated metal property and secondary metals recyclers, catalytic converters and perhaps others that directly affect the Georgia recycling industry. You will note that Brian also tracks and includes other general business issues that impact us.

It looks as if will be a busy session, and we may be reaching out to you for assistance in contacting certain legislators. We will also be in touch with general association matters as well as asking for your help us in recruitment of new members. 

Please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions or comments. Thanks so much for your membership in the GRA and your continued support of the recycling industry in Georgia.

Sam Bacon, President
