The Clayton County Legislative Delegation is hearing from several governmental and community representatives about possible bills to be introduced at the next session.

State Rep. Rhonda Burnough (D-77, Riverdale)

“For the past four years, the CCLD has reached out to Clayton County leaders requesting information on any matters that require legislative action,” Rep. Rhonda Burnough (D-77, Riverdale) said in a press release. “Issues range from pay raises to changes to charter to budget requests. Any legislation carried must pass both the House and the Georgia Senate [to become law].”

The groups that are meeting with the delegation about proposed legislation include:

  • Clayton County Government
  • Clayton County Public Schools
  • Clayton County Superior Court
  • Clayton County Police Department
  • Clayton County Magistrate Court
  • Judge Robert Mack
  • Clayton Center/Dr. Lee Adams
  • Atlanta Technical College
  • Oakwood Trails Subdivision

Burnough said, “The CCLD is always looking for ways to support our communities. We look forward to introducing legislation that will continue to enrich Clayton County and support our residents.”

The meeting is being held at the Northwest Library Branch, 6131 Riverdale Road, Riverdale.

At the Gold Dome, Burnough serves on the Special Committee on Election Integrity, as well as the Economic Development and Tourism Committee, the Governmental Affairs Committee, the Higher Education Committee, and the Small Business Development Committee. She represents District 77, which includes the City of Riverdale, unincorporated Riverdale, Jonesboro, and Morrow.
