Crossover Day deadline last Friday

At the statehouse in Atlanta, legislators have been working hard toward the first of several finish lines during the legislative session.

Friday, March 3 was Crossover Day, the final day for a bill to have passed either chamber. Any bill that failed to make it out of the House or the Senate will not be viable for consideration this year.

Typically the 30th day of the 40-day legislative session, Crossover Day this year was moved to the 28th day to give the opposite chamber more time to review the legislation before the final day of the session, which is March 30.
