Jan. 9 kicks off the 2017 legislative session of the Georgia General Assembly.

2017 Legislative Session

The 2016 legislative session in Georgia began on January 9, 2017 as it is constitutionally required to begin on the second Monday of January each year. The legislature in Georgia is a part-time legislature that serves the state for a 40-day period. Legislative session each year typically wraps up by the end of March, but has operated well into April and even May in the not too distant past. The legislature’s biggest hurdle is to pass a balanced budget each year as that is also constitutionally required.
