Here’s Your GA Senate Crossover Day Cheat Sheet

Well, here we are, on Crossover Day Eve. Many of our “friends in the hall” will have trouble sleeping, wondering if Santa will bring them their wish list, or if tomorrow will bring coal in their stockings – and leave them scrambling among the motor pool for a vehicle to raise their issue from the dead like it was on a soundstage in Senoia.

The Senate Rules Committee has distributed it’s bills that are cleared to be on the floor tomorrow. Note, just because a bill is open for consideration doesn’t mean it will be called up.

Further note: The tax reform bill containing the jet fuel tax break has already passed the House. Don’t expect it’s final fate to necessarily be decided tomorrow.
