Crossover Day Is Wednesday

ATLANTA (AP) – Issues including guns, illegal immigration and drug testing for unemployed Georgians seeking benefits are still on the table, but must be considered by at least one chamber of the Legislature by Wednesday to remain on the agenda this year.

The 30th day of the session, known as Crossover Day, is the deadline for bills to pass at least one chamber of the Legislature to remain alive, and is scheduled for March 7. This year’s session could wrap up later this month – earlier than in recent years, as lawmakers up for re-election are eager to return to their districts to raise money and campaign.

The session’s final 10 days promise to be a flurry of activity.
