With five legislative days to go, the House and Senate gavel in at 10 a.m. today.
The House will vote on the Senate version of the St. Patrick’s Day measure to allow Savannah bars to open on Sundays. The Senate will vote on bills addressing the crimes of strangulation and home invasion. The Senate will also unveil a memorial portrait of the late journalist Dick Pettys, which will hang in the Capitol press corps hallway.
The most interesting work will come in committees. The House Insurance Committee will take up the SB 98, which would ban insurance coverage in Georgia for state employees and those who get policies via federal health care exchanges.
Another House committee will take up the SB 383, which clarifies that coroners shouldn’t take the belongings of the deceased.
