What is Crossover Day: The Georgia General Assembly meets for 40 legislative (voting) days each year. Legislative Day 28 is crossover day. This is the last day that a bill can be passed in one chamber in order to be sent to the next chamber. Bills that don’t get a floor vote by crossover day won’t be passed this session.
Why Does It Matter: Crossover Day gives us a clearer picture of which bills are likely to become law this year. Bills that cross the from the house to the senate and vice-versa could end up on the Governor’s desk. Bills that don’t, will die and will have to be resubmitted in the next legislative session.
