A state panel tasked with ensuring compliance with Georgia's tough law targeting illegal immigration will likely hold its first hearing on a complaint early next year.
Members of the Immigration Enforcement Review Board on Thursday voted to instruct their chairman to take steps to set up a hearing on a complaint filed in July by anti-illegal immigration activist D.A. King.
King's complaint alleges the Department of Community Affairs isn't complying with its obligation under state law to collect specific information from government agencies that administer public benefits and to compile that information in a report each year.
Board chairman Ben Vinson also announced during the meeting that board member Robert Mumford recently resigned from the board to become a judge. House Speaker David Ralson is responsible for choosing his replacement.
