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 Monday, February 11, the Senate adopted HR 1225, which sets the following schedule:
Monday, February 11 . . . . . . .in session for legislative day 15
Tuesday, February 12.. . . . . . .in session for legislative day 16
Wednesday, February 13. . . . .in session for legislative day 17
Thursday, February 14. . . . . . in session for legislative day 18
Friday, February 15. . . . . . . . . in adjournment
Saturday, February 16. . . . . . .in adjournment
Sunday, February 17. . . . . . . . in adjournment
Monday, February 18.. . . . . . . in adjournment
Tuesday, February 19.. . . . . . .in session for legislative day 19
