Feb. 27 – ‘Crossover Day’ tomorrow brings a Jam-packed GA Senate Calendar for Weds.

By Lou Phelps, Coastal Empire News

February 27, 2018 – The Georgia Senate will take up a long list of bills Wednesday, designated as ‘Crossover Day,’ if a bill is going to survive this year.  All bills must be moved from the Senate to the House, and vice versa, to have a chance of passage in this year’s session which ends March 31.

Crossover Day is the last day for legislation to pass the chamber in which it was introduced and transfer to the other chamber for consideration. Senate bills must pass the Senate, and House bills must pass the House.  Any bill that does not receive a vote in its initial chamber by Day 30 cannot move on in the legislative process and must be re-introduced the following year.
