25-1020 acts to specifically protect the naturally sensitive south end including the 4-H complex and renown soccer fields from proposed high end residential development
25-1021 bars any increase in private residential units anywhere on Jekyll
25-1022 bars the selling of Jekyll land to private interests currently under discussion. It's a PARK
Chapman's substitute bill lost by only one vote in committee but if his amendments above are approved on the Senate floor Monday or Tuesday, the hopefully amended bill will still face being sent back to the House and probably a Conference Committee/.

Why are these legislators so anxious to give Jekyll away?
Senate President, Eric Johnson from Savannah used to represent this district and HE VOTED WITH THE GOVERNOR'S GROUP against Chapman's bill in committee.
House Majority Leader from St. Simons, Jerry Keen ,supports the proposed development options for Jekyll and
Senator Tommie Williams from Lyons used to represent us and owns property here too. Why isn't he standing up to protect Jekyll.
