Crossover Day at the Capitol….
You might be wondering what crossover day is; Crossover Day is the 30th legislative day of the Georgia General Assembly’s 40-day session. Per a Senate rule, no general House bill can pass to the Senate after Crossover Day.
What does this mean?
This means that any bill that did not make it past the house committees and onto the floor to be voted on will not “crossover” to the senate side. This also means that any bill that doesn’t make it to the senate side can not be voted on thus killing the bill.
