The Governmental Affairs Department represents the Georgia REALTORS® at the State Capitol during the legislative session, promoting the interests of REALTORS® and their clients. Legislation is analyzed by GAR to determine any potential impact on the real estate industry, private property rights and free enterprise. Policy positions are determined by GAR’s State and Local Government Affairs Committee.
The State and Local Government Affairs Committee meets Monday mornings at GAR headquarters during the legislative session. Participation is also available via video conference locations across the state. The meetings are open to all members of GAR; however, voting is limited to appointed committee members.
