Monday was the first day of the 2015 legislative session. It was also the birthday of Lt. Governor Casey Cagle. One of the first motions on the floor after the Senators were sworn in was to sing Happy Birthday to the Senate President. After some hemming and hawing about rules related to singing on the floor, the Lt. Gov relented, and we had this:
The first day of a new session in a joyous time, before legislators get around to dealing with the state’s business. Family, friends and hangers on are let into the Senate and House chambers to celebrate and to congratulate those newly sworn in.
Below the fold, some pictures from the first day in the Georgia Senate.
