Georgia process servers expect to see success in the passing of HB 289 which would remove the sunset clause from code § 9-11-4.1 relating to process servers.
This code covers certified process servers, procedure for becoming a certified process server, defining the crime of impersonating a process server and the punishment associated with impersonation. The sunset clause included in the code would mean it would be appealed effective July 1st.

HB 289 was passed by the House by a vote of 150-14 on February 20th. SB 110 which is a copy of HB 289 has also been introduced in the Senate. Sponsored by multiple Senators, the Georgia Association of Professional Process Servers feels confident the sunset clause will be removed.
