PRESS RELEASE: 2nd Hearing of the GA House Ad Hoc Committee on Investment Policy in Georgia (May 26th)

This is a manifestation of a blog I wrote at the end of last year on LinkedIn- Politics & Policy: How It Affects Your Access to Capital. As an elected official, I am constantly encouraging individuals to get involved in the policy making process as much as possible–policy affects your life more than you know it and those around you. But now I am urging businesses, who are made up of individuals, to get involved in the process as well. Remember that voting is the BARE minimum that you can do to get involved in the decision making process that affects that lives of millions of Americans.

As a member of the Georgia House of Representatives, I am able to directly influence the process of policy making. I decided to focus on private investing policy as my summer project given my background and passion for securities and capital markets. I serve on an ad hoc committee made up of my colleagues in the House and we are holding public hearings to listen to Georgia residents and investors to explore Georgia’s investment policy. You can review notes from our first hearing HERE. It was a good first step but there is still much to learn and do.

Well, we are on the move and have set a 2nd hearing that I hope you can all join us in attending. (Download PRESS RELEASE and share!)

I hope to see some of you there! If you’d like to be added to future announcements of hearings and events, please email dkendrick@kendrickforgeorgia.com, Subject: Private Investment Policy in GA.
