ATLANTA — Starting Monday, the Georgia General Assembly is going to start making up for lost time.
Lawmakers under the Gold Dome have been taking their time in order to keep out of the way of the extra traffic in downtown Atlanta for the Super Bowl, but starting Monday, and for the remainder of this year's 40-day session, both the State House and Senate will stay in session for longer work weeks to make up for lost time.
They are planning four five-day work weeks and three four-day weeks. The only weekday lawmakers are planning over the next three weeks will be Monday, Feb. 18, for the Presidents Day holiday.
The session continues through February and March before concluding on April 2.
