Friday is Crossover Day. For those playing at home, that’s the last day for a bill that originates in the House or Senate to be passed out of that chamber and passed to the other chamber in time for consideration (and passage) before Sine Die.
It was generally assumed that casinos in Georgia was dead for this session…until we got word via Jim Galloway over at the AJC that a House version of a casino measure, sponsored by Rep. Ron Stephens (R-Savannah), would be heard by the House Regulated Industries Committee at noon on Friday. The 11th hour, indeed.
As Jim cites Yogi Berra, “it ain’t over ’til it’s over.” We’ll see what happens in House Regulated Industries. I’m sure it will be fun to watch.
