The state House has approved a bill allowing a 2015 referendum on whether to create a city of Tucker in DeKalb County.

Tucker 2015 confirmed passage of the bill on Wednesday afternoon. The House voted 128-31 in favor of the legislation.

“Thank you to the members of the State House of Representatives for passing House Bill 515 supporting Tucker citizens’ right to vote for a City of Tucker! The passage today ensures the bill will move over to the Senate for consideration,” the group wrote on its Facebook page. “If approved, citizens within the proposed City of Tucker map will vote on cityhood in a November referendum.”

This is the second cityhood bill approved by the House today. Just hours ago, the house also passed a cityhood bill for a proposed city of LaVista Hills.

    Nice that zero DeKalb Dems could be bothered to vote against it.
