The Georgia General Assembly meets for no more than 40 legislative days each spring. The session commences on the second Monday after the first Tuesday in January. The legislature does not necessarily meet on consecutive days and the session often extends through March and well into April. The House and Senate set their schedule by Resolution, so, we at Lawmakers are often unaware of what the schedule will be until the Resolution is brought to the floor in one of the chambers for a vote.
When a Resolution is passed, it generally sets the schedule for up to two weeks at a time. On January 30, the Senate and House adopted SR 782, which sets the following schedule:
Friday, February 1. . . . . .in session for legislative day 10
Saturday, February 2. . . . . . .in adjournment
Sunday, February 3. . . . . . . . in adjournment
Monday, February 4.. . . . . . . in adjournment
Tuesday, February 5.. . . in session for legislative day 11
Wednesday, February 6..in session for legislative day 12
Thursday, February 7. . . in session for legislative day 13
Friday, February 8. . . . . . in session for legislative day 14
Saturday, February 9. . . . . . . in adjournment
Sunday, February 10. . . . . . . .in adjournment
Monday, February 11.. . . .in session for legislative day 15
