Georgia Adopts Revised Securities Rules
Revisions to the Georgia securities rules were adopted by the Secretary of State's Office but the effective date is slated to be about 20 calendar days from November 15, 2011. The rule changes were made to conform to the Georgia Uniform Securities Act of 2008, and affect federal covered securities, exemptions, securities registrations, broker-dealers/agents, investment advisers/investment adviser representatives and administrative hearings, procedures and investigations. The adopted (final) version of the rules is substantively the same as the proposed version here with some technical changes to be made by the rules revisor in time for the effective date.
