    It won’t matter after July 1, he’ll have no authority.

    Is SMMA still part of the State Park system? Regardless, I wonder which part of the no preemption doctrine the AG has trouble with. That doesn’t need to wait until July 1.

    No, Stone Mountain is not a state park as others are run by the Department of Natural Resources. Stone mountain is controlled by a state created authority.

    HB 89 deals with DNR property but not state authorities. So when July 1st comes, SM will still be off limits (unless something else is done).
