Atlanta Carpenters Talk Tax Fraud with Lawmakers

Georgia member leaders from Atlanta Local 225 joined their brothers and sisters from Savannah Local 256 and Augusta Local 283 to spend time at the Georgia State Capitol to talk with legislators about Tax Fraud and it's harmful effects on Georgia residents and businesses.

The effort was coordinated by SECRC Political and Communications Director, Brett Hulme.

HB389, which takes steps to curb Tax Fraud, is an active bill in this legislative session. Our goal was to educate legislators about the importance of supporting that bill.

We are proud to report that our efforts were successful! The Georgia House approved HB389 with an overwhelming bi-partisan vote of 152-12, and the Georgia Senate also approved HB389 in an overwhelming bi-partisan vote: 54-0!

The effort was part of the UBC's annual Tax Fraud Days of Action, where UBC members from across the country stand up against Tax Fraud for the week leading up to Tax Day, 2022. Learn more about the UBC's Tax Fraud efforts at
