Associated Press Release

ATLANTA (AP) -- State lawmakers in Georgia face a busy final day.

By law, the General Assembly meets for a 40-day annual session. The final day Thursday is called Sine Die, which means adjourning without setting a date to return.

Lawmakers typically face a daylong series of votes that continue in a chaotic rush until the clock strikes midnight. Any bills not approved by the House and Senate by Thursday automatically fail for the year. Lawmakers can pursue those proposals again next year.

State lawmakers have been discussing whether to restrict lobbyist spending, loosen gun laws and still need to pass the state budget.
