Under the Gold Dome: Crossover Edition

This past week, the General Assembly marked “Crossover Day,” the 28th day of the legislative session. This is the deadline for bills and resolutions to pass from their originating chamber to remain eligible for final consideration by Legislative Day 40, or "Sine Die." On Crossover Day alone, the House passed 72 bills, working long hours and late into the night to tackle a range of pressing issues important to Georgians and our state.

Under the Gold Dome: February 2024 Update

It was a short but packed week as we focused on key legislation ahead of "Crossover Day" on February 29. Crossover Day is the deadline for bills to pass out of the House or Senate in order to move forward this session. Bills that do not cross over are unlikely to become law this year. We continued to make significant progress this week to advance issues most important to Georgians, including enhancing public safety, investing in behavioral healthcare, prioritizing education, protecting minors and further ensuring election security.
