The word from Insideradvantage sources at the state capital is that several lawmakers are huddling together to craft legislation that would force the Georgia Bar Association to look “more like an association and less like a union.” Potential legislation would require the Georgia Bar to make their dues voluntary. Historically all attorneys in Georgia have been required to pay with no choice in the matter. The lawmakers, who asked to remain anonymous have said its time the Bar “had to earn its dues like everybody else in Georgia.” This will surely be a hotly debated piece of legislation as it gets closer to the January kickoff of the 2015 session.
