Crossover Day: What To Expect

Mar 4, 2019

It's crunch time at the state Capitol as the legislative session barrels towards Crossover Day on Thursday.

That's essentially the last day a bill has to pass out of either the House or the Senate to be considered through the rest of the 40-day session. 


Several high-profile measures have yet to cross over, including two abortion bills, a proposed state takeover of Atlanta's airport, a hate crimes bill and several health care proposals. Others, like the governor's proposal for Medicaid waivers and a sweeping voting bill have made it out and are working through the legislative process.

Tuesday will be the last legislative day before the marathon Crossover Day session, with Wednesday being a day dedicated to committee meetings to help advance those bills to the floor.
