Thanks to Andre for sending me news of this.
From the AJC:
U.S. Reps. Dennis Kucinich, a liberal Democrat from Ohio, and Lynn Westmoreland, a conservative Republican from Coweta County, plan to hold a public hearing at the Georgia State Capitol Monday about how the high rate of bank failures in Georgia is affecting commercial and residential real estate markets….
Scheduled to testify at the congressional field hearing are state and federal banking regulators and top officials from banks and construction companies. U.S. Rep. David Scott, an Atlanta Democrat, also is expected to take part in the 11:30 a.m. Monday meeting.
Kucinich, who is chairman of a House oversight and government reform subcommittee, agreed to hold the hearing in Atlanta at Westmoreland’s request.
The subcommittee which has focused on foreclosures and other economic issues, has held public hearings in other hard-hit parts of the country as well, said Kucinich spokesman Nathan White.
I also believe there is going to be a Tea Party at the State Capitol tomorrow. That should make for some interesting cross-pollination.
