ATLANTA (AP) — Georgia lawmakers face multiple key decisions on the final scheduled day of their 2022 session.
Most importantly, the General Assembly must still pass a budget.
But senators and representatives must also try to reach an agreement on a tax cut that could be worth more than $1 billion.
Additional debates could loom on legalizing more forms of gambling, requiring physical exams before a woman could be prescribed abortion pills and further changes to state election laws.
Some key proposals have already passed, including a mental health reform measure and loosening gun laws. Other measures appear dead, but bills can come back to life on the General Assembly’s last day.
