ATLANTA (AP) -- The Georgia state Senate has passed a version of a bill intended to move the state's 2014 primary election date to May 20.

According to the state Senate press office, House Bill 310 passed by a 38-15 vote Tuesday. The proposed legislation will now be presented in the state House of Representatives.

The proposed legislation would require all candidates to file campaign finance reports by March 31, and would make the state and partisan county primaries compatible with the state's federal primary schedule.

The proposal calls for candidate qualifying to run from March 3 to March 7.
