The 40-day legislative session kicked off Monday with replacement lawmakers getting sworn in, committees beginning to work, and a warning to tone down the politics.
Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle welcomed the 56 senators in that legislative chamber with some advice.
“All of us should take a moment and remember why each of us is here, to help the people of Georgia we represent,” he said.
Not only is this an election year, but a primary rescheduled from July to May leaves legislators eager to get the session over with as quickly as possible to maximize time for fundraising and campaigning, Cagle noted.
