It’s Cross Over Day

I feel sorry for them. Maybe we should all chip in and send them up some pizza and beer.

Sunday alcohol sales won’t be taken up at the Capitol today, and neither will the governor’s senior citizens tax break. But a laundry list of other issues, from the controversial to the mundane, will be discussed as both the Georgia House and Senate convene for lengthy Crossover Day sessions.

The House is set to debate changes to the state’s PeachCare insurance program for children, which would cut costs by making some families ineligible for the program. Numerous other issues, including hospital regulation reforms, changes to annexation laws and new life for the pay day lending industry, could be added to the House debate calendar this morning.

The Senate is scheduled to churn through a series of hotly debated issues, including employees’ rights to bring their guns to work, community improvement districts and the Senate’s own set of new annexation rules.

    Thanks Erick, we will be expecting it. Pizza would be great, but could you send me Coke instead of beer? 🙂

    I bet there are a lot of Irish Coffees and Screwdrivers floating around the caucus rooms this morning.

    It would be rather interesting if we could send Pizzas to the Senate from the bloggers at Peach Pundit!

    Hopefully SB 43 will be defeated today.

    See, if they had managed to actually do anything over the past 30 days, I might chip in for pizza.

    They get nothing from be but a hard time.

    State Rep Margaret Kaiser owns a great pizza restaurant in Grant Park. Order the pizzas and send them to the House! (acutally we just had Chick-fil-A)

    an aside but this seemed like as good a place as any to bring it up–how long has the house had 180 members–should we bump it up to 190 or even 200–the 2000 census had us at 8.1 million–so that one rep for every 45k–we are st. at over 9 million now–so thats 50k per rep and we may be close to 10 million by the next census which would be 55k per rep.–just curious if anyone had thoughts on this…
