Day 40- April 3, 2009

Tonight on Lawmakers at 7 PM, a joint Conference Committee works to come to an agreement on the $18.6 billion budget; negotiations on a transportation funding solution go down to the wire; compensation for the wrongly convicted John Jerome White narrowly passes the Senate; National Editor of Capitol Impact dot com, Tom Crawford, joins us live for the latest Capitol news and the Senate attempts to amend House legislation to require the use of seatbelts in pickup trucks. Also tonight at 11 PM, the Lawmakers Sine Die Special!

It’s the 40th and final day of the Georgia General Assembly’s 2009 session. Join David Zelski and Nwandi Lawson at 7 PM for our half hour Lawmakers program as we review the day's action thus far and return to GPB at 11 PM for a one hour live presentation of the Lawmakers Sine Die Special.

Many issues remain unresolved as we approach the end of the session, perhaps most importantly the 2010 budget and transportation funding solutions. We’ll have the latest from the Conference Committees on HB 119, the FY 2010 budget and HB 277, the Georgia 2020 Transportation Act.

We’ll also be wrapping up this legislative week in fine Lawmakers fashion by checking in with the venerable Tom Crawford, National Editor of for his thoughts on the action under the gold dome as the clock ticks down to midnight.

All that and the latest Capitol news- including live coverage of the House and Senate- tonight on Lawmakers at 7 PM.
