UPDATE 5/8/2018: Gov. Nathan Deal signed into law a bill that would allow part of the city of Stockbridge to be annexed if the new city of Eagles Landing is formed. This was one of the more controversial measures on his desk to sign by Tuesday's deadline.
ORIGINAL STORY: A bill that passed just hours before the end of this year’s legislative session is creating conflict for some residents of Henry County.
If Governor Nathan Deal signs it, voters could create the new city of Eagles Landing, and with it, their own government, tax base and services.
To do so, they would take away land, revenue and residents from the city of Stockbridge.
