“Crossover Day” in the Georgia legislature was Tuesday, March 15th—the 28th legislative day of 40 total legislative days – the day by which all bills must have passed one legislative chamber in order to cross over and be considered by the other chamber. Bills that have not passed one chamber prior to crossover are generally dead for the year, although there are still opportunities for tax provisions to be added to other tax bills that have crossed over. Georgia’s Constitution requires that all revenue related bills originate in the House, so the vast majority of bills still alive for the year now go over to the Senate. Sine Die, or the 40th and final legislative day, this year will be April 4, 2022.
