UPDATED May 13, 2019. Governor Kemp signed this bill yesterday. The IERB is officially abolished. Good riddance!

The bill (HB553) that repeals the law that created the IERB received zero “NAY” votes. We are confident the governor will allow this bill to become law. Did we say “WHOPPEE?” Please see here for a little more insight on our joy. See here for more info from Decaturish.com
